Guerilla-performance (2019)

Scored live work, approx duration 15. min

First performed as a guerilla-performance at the International Women’s Day in 2019. On the steps of the Royal Academy in Mayfair, a long-standing male-led institution for its first century of existence, fragile prompted attention to women’s rights and equality. The performance is an ode to the Suffragettes, yet not undermining the fragility of our current unbalanced society. Through a non-verbal yet demanding protest, Lisa made the personal political. Wrapping herself in packaging tape, limiting her capability of movement, the constraint also becomes a tool – a motivation for change.

Performed on the steps of Royal Academy (London), Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery (New York)
