I DON’T CARE IF IT HURTS – 2007
An actress plays the part of a corpse for the duration of the exhibition and is complimented by a poster that illustrates the same Hegelian principle.
The performance is based on a contradiction between acting and being – it confirms the nature of metaphors when embodying its own reality.
The poster that accompanies it expresses a complimentary opposite of the performance; it is made of quotations that takes the shape of an eye. The eye becomes the 'i' in the 'if' of 'I Don’t Care if It Hurts.' While the specific quote is from a popular song by Radiohead, the pun lies in the ambivalence of what or who 'It' is.
Cast: Christina Flick, Hilde Caroline Labadie, Kimmy Ligtvoet
