Artifacts in my Mouth

Performance/ intervention and photographs
Ste. Hyacinthe, Québec, 2003


I was given permission to put museum artifacts in my mouth. I opened the vitrines with the technician, and was allowed to experience the objects, with my tongue, lips, and sense of smell. I was permitted to put a peacock’s head, an Egyptian statuette, a lasso, an unknown bone, and a model of the moon into my mouth for a brief period.

The work was enacted at the Museum of Ste. Hyacinthe in Ste. Hyacinthe, Quebec in 2003.
