Cherry Love Part I: Tattooing
interactive performance
29 May, 2012 00:00 klo 20:30-22:30
part of project: perfhop

Cherry Love is an adult girl without love. She has always had utterly conflicted associations towards her own body and she still doesn’t completely accept it. Helsinki’s queer circles and the world of burlesque artists excite her to make the decision to put herself on show. In particular the idea attracts her that each body can be beautiful and worth looking at. Cherry has prepared herself by reading Barthes’ and Breton’s ideas about love.

Cherry has decide to experiment.

Here it begins! Cherry dresses herself into the only fitting cherry dress and decides to get herself a tattoo.

Come and tell Cherry about your own experiences, share hints or convince her about the perfect tattoo for her. You can also hear presentations on Cherry’s thoughts about love. Cherry warmly welcomes you.
