Collecting the objects from Goa, its land and soil, and connecting them with her tongue using a copper wire Katarina is creating a permanent tie with each object engraving its weight into her tissue. This act symbolizes raw connection with the environment of Goa. These objects were picked up from various places; markets, beaches, and residency spaces where Katarina stayed. Each object communicated on the individual level, no matter if it was a nail, flower, feather, leaf, chili or a shell. Towards the end of the performance Katarina removed one by one object and gave them to the people around, creating a non-verbal dialogue. As a reminiscence of the performance there was a nest like structure created around Rasic tongue. Nest like structure is related to safety of home, away from home, stability that common language can bring to our mind.
Performance was done during residency program ACT II: Speak up! at Studio 365, Goa Velha. Performance venue: HH Art Space.
Rasic used found objects as metaphor for the place, space and time, creating non-verbal communication with viewers.
