Performance piece with red lipstick and white cotton cloth.
This work considers femininity, sexuality, animality, and carnality as entangled aspects of a performative femme identity. Red lipstick is applied, revealing an often personal and intimate ritual as the performer gazes into a mirror, then wiped away and applied again. The cloth, face, and hands of the performer gradually become smudged, saturated, and stained with red.
