Seeding Mermaids

1987

Works arising from stories or stories resulting works. Narratives are a form of design that uses as support the imagined time and displays on the lived time, a testimony or a scene that proves that story.

 

On the eve of the performance in Newcastle in 1993, the artist described a walk on the shore, at dusk, where he discovers his own severed head attached to long strands of hair partially submerged in a small puddle. He removes this ‘morbid trophy’ and spins it in the air before throwing it back into the sea. Then the artist finds a headless woman’s body floating in the water. In the text, the idea of sowing mermaids is associated with the cultivation of the mandrake, a black-flowered plant associated with the gates to the Underworld. Its roots have a hominid shape.
