Washing Hearts

This installation was part of “Illusion Show #8” at MCCLA, San Francisco 2015


Washing Hearts was part of the "Illusion Show 8" at the Mission Cultural Center. "Let's be neighbors and share memories to liberate your body and mind". This piece was an invitation to be neighbors and talk openly about life, memories, experiences, dreams, concerns, etc. The window was a portal of communication like in the old days. At the event, I performed one-on-one conversations with participants while I washed a pig heart and hung it up on a clothes line when the conversation was finished. The collective realization at the end of the evening was that when the heart is damaged, it compensates itself. It does the same when it is broken.
