On Body Art & Performance

“It always involves, for example, a loss of personal identity, a refusal to allow the sense of reality to invade and control the sphere of the emotions, and a romantic rebellion against dependence upon both people and things. Tenderness is always the goal aimed for and missed and therefor surrounded by frustration. And this is always accompanied by the anguish that derives from the absence of an “Adult” and altruistic form of love.” - Body Art & Performance: The Body as Language by Lea Vergine (p. 7)
