Facing works the basic fonction of seeing the other and being seen, it was first performed at the entrance of MOMA during Marina Abramović retrospective (as part of the SCOTCH TAPE crossing Manhattan performance). Beyond the visual homage, like she did with Ulay, the work emphases for the performer the recognition of the other and for the spectator the right or the discomfort to touch or simply see these taboo-bodies and frees a real pleasure and joy.
