in public space,
edition 200 pieces
The self-injury of artists as a performative act was integrated in the 1960s and 70s. The pin is also a material used to show the transgression of physical boundaries and social subjection of precarious, marginalized people. Invulnerable refers to the hurtful social structures that reproduce subtle mechanisms of exclusion in the public space and it uses imagery to illustrate a stop. The pin does not go completely under the skin, instead only partially. The adhesive tape holds the needles on the skin and props them on the body, the needles do not injure it but strengthen it.
