“Detachment/Desprendimiento”
Video Performance
Duration: 3 min.

Stills from video

The bond between a mother and daughter wavers throughout its evolution. The most prevalent, and possibly most taboo, is the separation of ideologies and disruption of communication. Daily life turns into steps in opposite directions. In this video, I demonstrate the detachment between a mother and daughter while maintaining an invisible umbilical cord that once linked us together but only remains metaphorically. Once detached, the only thing that remains and links the two is blood.
