As an autobiographical portrait, Take Me explores personal history, cultural influences, and loneliness. The table, in combination with the strong colors of the chosen objects, the focused light, the mechanical voiceover, and movements, build an aesthetic distance between the artist and the audience. The performance is comprised of both conscious and unconscious writings, interrupted silences, and painful, romantic images of the body.
For this performance, there is a table and a chair, where I blindfolded myself and while peeling and cutting a grapefruit with a sharpened knife, I expose my biggest fears, most of them related to physical and psychological violence, personal experiences of gender relations.
As a performance artist, I use to place my own body, voice and thoughts putting myself in a vulnerable position, giving myself to others.
Though I am aware that it is a specific relation artist-spectator, it represents the biography of the female body, the economic control, the cultural implications of the female form, its representation, sexualization, and objectification.
