Naivy Pérez: A Drop of Honey Julio Pantoja

A Drop of Honey

A Drop of Honey depicts a scene of water-based torture. The artist replaces water with honey, a substance with medicinal properties. The performance will be live streamed via Skype. The “torture chamber” will be unknown by the public and will thus become a non-place. This piece evokes metaphors of power, martyrdom and survival.
