Hormone Microperformance


I am a traveling saleswoman, a nomadic cuntress performing with sex hormones. 

Exhibited at Raumschiff Gallery during Ars Electronica in Linz, Hormone Microperformance is an installation of hormonal shrines situated next to the "freak-science" experimentation process from which it originates. Hormones, when isolated from the body, act as pheromones that can influence the mind and behavior through chemical signaling. Using urine samples given by the other artists of the show, sex hormones were extracted and connected to oxygen masks for the audience to inhale and experience. What they experience is a microcolonization of the mind that is both ancient and evolutionary, but imperceptible to the naked eye.
