Pepper

2009 / 30 minutes / live performance / Citykirche St. Jakobi, Hildesheim, DE

I lie on my belly on the altar of St. Jakobi church. I wear a long, dark-red dress and in front of me is a small heap of cayenne pepper. I lick the pepper, vomit, cough, lick it again and so on. In the end I lie on my back. My head hangs over the altar facing the public, the cross is behind me. I scream.
