This performance happened at the Queens Museum as part of Post-Midnight: Artists Respond to "After Midnight", the exhibition of modern and contemporary art from India.
I considered the performance to be a conversation between the artist, Subodh Gupta and I. His work, What does the vessel contain that the river does not? was the object of reflection.

My body as vessel -

holding like,

loaded like,

curved like

bottom of boat like

small of my back like

tight after holding.

Failing more and more 

while

the other breathed easy.

I became loaded by the other

in order to become more

the other

asking to be a reflection of

time spent

holding

breaking

inside

to mo(o)r(e)

here.
