sometimes forever, 2016
participatory performance, Solyanka State Gallery, Moscow, Russia

Participants were invited to exchange a memory or a story for a tattoo.

"If you have a beautiful memory, a meaningful story or a past event that you would like to keep on your body forever, I will give you a permanent stick and poke tattoo. Together we will decide a word or an image that will symbolize your memory and stay with you forever. If you have a memory, event or a story that you would rather forget and indefinitely let go, I will give you a temporary tattoo which will fade within time. Hopefully your memory will vanish with it."
