WET PAIN(T)

Performance and live-to-camera (2018)

Scored live work, approx duration 10. min

WET PAIN(T) is a performance drawing upon imagery from Carolee Schneeman’s Interior Scroll
from ’75 and the famous scene from Basic Instinct (1992) of Sharon Stone (un)crossing her legs. Addressing that being wet can access inflicted power and is not synonymous with pleasure, Lisa crosses out the last T's one by one as she pulls the wet paint banner out of her vagina.

By using an old banner found in a nearby park, Lisa underlines the fear many women face walking on their own at night.
