Berlin, Germany 2014 | Latitude, UK 2015
Material: two bodies, early 20th century period suitcase, pins, bottled water, choral music, portable speaker.
Action: 30 minute reciprocal self flagellation for two bodies.
Inspired by a ritual known as Matam, which takes place in the Shiite ceremony of Ashura, PASSION/Flower transcends its origins, becoming an action that opens the body to a trance state of rhythm & ritual practice, that the artists intentionally interrupt.
Exhibited in 2014 with support from MPA and University of Bristol.
Exhibited in 2015 with support from Latitude, Tempting Failure and Arts Council England.
