On the night of November 1, 2013 I covered my whole body with white feathers gluing them directly on to my skin. Reenacting Cuban performance artist Ana Mendieta's 1974's piece 'Blood and feathers', I went out at night on to the streets of Moscow, my home city as a living sculpture. I stood still with my right hand up in the middle of the street, in public spaces and in a night club waiting for people to stick to my skin just like feathers. For the duration of the performance I remained speechless.
