The locker. Artist in shame.

Żaneta Górska / 100 min.

How shame is affecting the working process of creating art piece?
During the performance I am closed in a locker used by worker to keep personal things during the work. The screen is standing near the locker and it shows real-time transmission from inside the locker. The locker is small, narrow space, uncomfortable to stand in. Just as shame is creating claustrophobic space inside a mind.
For one and half hour of the performance I am crocheting using the red worsted. During this time the yarn is collecting outside under the door of the closet. From time to time someone is trying to look inside locker through slots in door. From inside I feel them unnaturally close to my body.
