After the Re-Membering
Saturday October 21 8 pm
First, I began with urinals filled with red wine and fifty loaves of bread torn to pieces. I pieced together the original loaves and once each was finished I spit wine into the cracks. Then, I began with bread dough full of lamb meat and human hair. I separated the meat and hair from the dough and placed each in separate piles while red wine dripped from the ceiling onto my back. I wrapped the dough across my chest and lay under the wine. Finally, I began with a horse piñata filled with raw meat and red wine. I dismembered it and attached the pieces to my body. I took the horse to a corral in the forest and re-membered it. This piece is about what happens next.
