"You are contemplating an action which will bring credit upon you" Fortune cookie

2010 Creon Gallery, New York
Photography by Gianina Jimenez Barrantes

Performance exhibited at the group show “Memory Leaks”, curator by Monica Espinel.

I expect with this performance to disrupt pre-established concepts about the relationship between women and religion. During the performance I wrap my arm with a strip that is the Tefellin, a ritual object used by Jewish men to “connect” with God. Here, the strip serves as an extension of my body by showing how my body responds and express this relationship.
At the end, with the participation of the public, we are dancing the “Yemin Hasem”, is a Jewish melody that signify meditation and hope.
