Hangnail, 2014

to and fro

Artspace Aotearoa, Auckland

A collaborative series of performances with Julia Croucher.

In Beauty Binds, we took symbols of femininity and exaggurated them to the point of a grotesque performance of gender.

We created kitsch, pink hyper-femme fake nails, which we were joined by. We sat across a table from each other and shared a single pair of scissors to awkwardly cut ourselves apart.

Durational performance, PVC, nail polish, glue, paint, miscellaneous nail decorations, scissors.
