Translation to czech Sylva Ficová



Burn the evidence. Burn yourself.

This is part of performance art series based on the Old babylonian text "Maqlú" (Burning) which has nine tablets. Each performance deals with one of them. It is a kind of protective ritual text. Each tablet I am makeing in a different style, referring to another spiritual tradition. At the end of the performance, audience can burn up some little thing that symbolizes what they want to get rid of in their life. It is always a site-specific action for a particular space.
