Lick Thy Wounds

Lick Thy Wounds, Open studio’s Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven, Antwerp, 180’

In a bright pink puddle of candy-syrup I’m lying on the ground for three hours. On my back is written “Lick thy wounds”. People come over and touch me to ensure I am a real person. A few children dip their finger into the puddle and taste the sweet candy-syrup.
