MEDICAL CERTIFICATE

Performance
Duration: 3 hours
2019

For three hours I’d been stitching a huge medical certificate on the diagnosis of a ganglion cyst on my wrist. It’s a very painful joint hernia, and on the recommendation of the doctor I am forbidden to embroider, which I still did. The choice of this technique was important In the context of my artistic practice, because embroidery is considered a traditional female occupation.
