Performance. Ciego de Ávila, Cuba. 2005

Performance made during Lent which consisted on to make a cut on the fingers of both hands and bandage them together, so that the wounds healed together at the same time. The hands position looked like the posture of praying, which characterizes the Lent period. It alleged about the submissive character, which is demanded on believers, during this stage. This hands posture was kept permanently during the healing period. The work did not only put to test the capacity of the body to assume a forced union, but also tested those who helped me all the time. The people close to me, especially my family, helped me with the daily actions that I could not made during that time.
