Painting until it becomes Marble — Love never dies
3rd of November 2011, painted 11meter paper roll with my hair. It marked the ending of my 7years marriage. 2nd of March 2019, I married to my long time collaborator and life partner. Jamie and I hosted a big wedding in very short preparation time. Because time was against us, his mother was very quick drifting away! .
Two weeks ago we lost our mother after an one year long battle with cancer. When I flew into Leipzig on Wednesday, as my plane took off to the air, the infinite cloud swaddled me like a blanket. My tears flooded down my face, I wonder if I could see my mother in law in the sky? When she died, my husband said to me that he felt her love was everywhere, all around him. I surprised that he didn’t cry. He said, that she had prepared him and told him that “love never dies.” .
One hour hair painting, then with the help of all my audiences we wishes to rise my painting! But, the top paper rolled and collapsed! Even know we tested and I had best help from the most trusted technicians!
Such as live performance! Such as life... that grief and sorrow is not easily to be rise up and it will stay with us forever ... .
