This spontaneous outdoor performance was recorded on Brighton beach. I push slowly through waves to reach a lone rock, which I climb upon to begin a double cleansing ritual: first through pouring my own menstrual blood onto my skin; second through immersion in the sea itself. My body seeks the waves, yet is overwhelmed by them. It is cleansed of its blood, yet bleeds afresh from cuts received during the action.
This film is free to watch but if you would like to make a donation towards my work as an artist, that is highly appreciated. The performance was self-funded and is very personal – https://paypal.me/EstherBunting
