2013 – 25 minutes
Eat me is a reflection by the female contortionist on the art of contortion, which is often performed by young girls, and on the sexual image that could be projected into the audience’s eyes. Eat me strips this body naked, making the artist and the spectator fully aware of its vulnerability, sexuality and womanhood. A process of empowerment through the objectification of the body, Eat me seeks to create a protective distance between body and soul by questioning nudity, both mental and physical.
