Onion Joy | 1999 | live performance

onion joy

Onion Joy, (for Carolee Schneemann).
5 days of performance, Snelgrove Gallery, Saskatoon.

I collected my body weight in yellow cooking onions, through invitation for donations, and arranged the onions around a chopping block in the gallery. I aimed to chop onions uninterrupted for one hour each day for five days.

The performance permitted me the chance to cry in public.
