I Will Quench Your Thirst
I Will Quench Your Thirst,
Durational performance (2 hours) Disorder Live Art,
Ugly Duck, London, November 2019
In this piece, I transformed myself into a hybrid, representing a new form of power connected to the future control and use of water.
Taking into consideration current research stating that the availability of fresh water is rapidly changing all over the world and drinking water will be the most valuable commodity, I turned myself into a Sci-Fi figure, using 100 meters of plastic watering hoses. I stood up for a while and then started walking around and interacting with spectators, inviting them to use the hoses instinctively and offering to them shots of water.
This performance addresses ethical aspects of water ownership and control, challenging the public to reflect on what the impending form of power is and how this power can be exercised for humanity’s sake.
