Untitled (Rape Scene) (1973/2014)
Performance. VAF Commons Gallery, UCSD. January 10, 2014. Duration: 47:30.

I reperformed Ana Mendieta's Untitled (Rape Scene) (1973), wherein the artist is in her apartment,
motionless, and tied to her dining table, surrounded by blood and signs of a struggle. I re-created
this scene in my studio, where I was living at the time.
