A HOLE IS BEING GNAWED IN MY VITALS (says Sappho)

Sappho

(2020) Performance with Fette Sans, duration: 7 hours

In A hole is being gnawed in my vitals (says Sappho)“ Marie von Heyl and Fette Sans performed the excesses and exhaustions of language. The 7 hour long non-stop conversation circled around the redundancy of desire, the porous body, exorcisms and cravings of love and the leaking of words that cannot be taken back. The performance took place in November 2020 on the opening day of „Love Letters: Stories of Distant Proximities“ at Horse and Pony Berlin amidst work by Kasia Fudakowski and Julie Favreau. The exhibition was curated by Lea Schleiffenbaum and Marie DuPasquier.
