Give

“Give” is an object based, endurance piece in which I stood beneath a metal frame that held 6 vertical open lipstick containers. The lipsticks hung at various heights to which I was able to stretch and reach from the tips of my toes. Underneath the structure I repeated the action of sampling, applying, and selecting a lipstick using only my mouth. This action continued until I had chosen a lipstick and my body reached its physical limit.
