This is documentation of a live performance. The low quality of the video is due to technical difficulties during the filming. What you are looking at is a pitch black room and in the corner appears a dim figure talking to itself and the audience.
The ‘Johari Window’ theory proposed that there is an area of ourselves which our subconscious has command over called the “Unknown”, It is here that shame has the capacity to hijack the self thus breeding destructive behaviour. I investigated and scrutinized shame within myself, to comprehend the potential of its toxic nature. The work extends an invite to “feel”, to be part of attaining the artwork’s full meaning and true hope, but it is up to you, the viewer, to accept or reject this invitation. The art requires the presence of another because shame is an interpersonal affect. The connection between the audience and the art can expose vulnerability and can lead to a rippling effect into empathy, the antidote to shame.
