The living scar
Performance video and text from artist diary
The living scar, is a video of two scars that she had tattooed on her body in response to the date 17th August, living far from her motherland. Through this performance, the artist identifies her body with dissected lands and the marks as a continuity of scars of living history in her country. Her body not only carries these two historical marks/scars, but now she lives between these two scars.
