Sunset Slit was a performance where the artist emulated the gesture of a woman emerging from water and whipping her hair back, using a bucket of water, and kneeling / standing on top of a rug of white towels. It starts with clean water. The hair carries black ink that becomes more visible as it dissolves in the water and splatters all around, marking the clothes of the performer along with the rug beneath. This photograph documenting the braided hair that was used to splash ink throughout the performance.
