Eating My Heart Out

Eating My Heart Out, 2005, documents a singular transgressive act: the eating of a heart shaped object. It is indulgent and strange. The artist bends over the heart trying her hardest to take a bite out of it. The gauze becomes increasingly stained by the bleeding heart. While the red heart is both symbolic and real, it is this fleeting mix between what’s fake and what’s truthful that keeps the video moving.
