Lucy - a performance by Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen 

It matters which earth you are born into
Earth equals land
Land equals identity
Ethnicity and culture

 

In her performance Lucy, Lillibeth Cuenca Rasmussen rubs herself in clay and place herself in it. Through a repeated process, the artist grounds herself in clay and leaves her mark. During the performance, the spectators are invited to be a part and take clay from her, so that they themselves may create something new, shape the earth or simply light a candle for her.

Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen’s performance may be seen as a reflexion on the state of coming from different cultures and belonging in several places.

Rasmussen primarily works with video and performance, and her productions often involve text, music and visual elements such as specially designed costumes as an integral part. She collects, adapts and universalises her narratives in a both critical and humorous processing of issues such as identity, culture, religion, gender and social relations.
