Beneath The Skin
Performance Art And Photography
Performances in Wales and Venice Biennale
Our fates intwined when i saw you lying there
My intentions; material.
I wanted you as a scarf, i wanted you as a hat,
A trophy of my salvage,
it was the way i was used to.
After spending time with you,
touch of your body,
not being able to look you in the eyes,
becoming normal, becoming a part of me.
Your eyes are amazing,
I wonder what you see every day,
wonder is what brought me to you.
I took you back to where i found you,
I found where i believe is your home,
And for the next period of my life i lived as you.
Finding any means to survive.
After this time together,
you as my skin,
there became a fusion.
it was then i realised, the self-inflicted metamorphosis,
within the journey between us.
until there was no us,
there was just me.
