Performance / Canvas, ink

I followed the person whom I fully trust, I jumped into the circles drawn by him and followed his speed when he painted the circles on canvas, I adjusted my movements and tried to keep balance in order not to fell down. I felt the tension between us was slowly increasing.

The inside area of the circles represent the space where I met another person’s emotional needs. This person can be someone I rely on, or someone with power whom I need obey. I was leaded, restricted, restrained and controlled, I was responding to the emotional needs, controlled by the other one physically and mentally. Sometimes, the other person adjusted his rhythms as well, sometimes he just ignored my reactions and feelings. They are emotional circles between two people.
