My performance at the opening of the "STOP WARS" exhibition in Magasins généraux, Paris.

Curator Louise Morin

I held chalk in my hands. Two chalks were in my right hand - yellow and blue, and three were in my left hand - red, blue, and white. These are the colors of two countries that my body and heart belong to, countries that are now at war.  Nothing new here.

The chalk in my hands moved my body, leaving traces on the floor. Once the chalk was a wingman, and once my body was a wingman.  My traсks and my boundaries took the form of circles, spirals, and lines. They were changing all the time. It was exhausting. Movements routine and rituals became parts of our life in resistance and surviving in the dark time of nightmare. My performance was done when chalks ended in my hand. 

The chalk ends. 

I don't.
