Tell them I was Flying

Performance
2016

I balanced myself while attached to a harness for about 30 minutes. Then an older white male performer suspended me in the air, using a pulley system, then tied it to an anchor which was attached to a nearby column. I existed in crucifixion form, while suspended and zip-tied to a plank of wood and parts of the harness. This lasted for as long as I could handle (1hr & 45min). Then was taken down and cut out of the crucifix by three black queer performers. Then escorted out of the space.
