A Pound of Flesh is a participatory performance held, in its first iteration, in the local market of the city of Limassol, Cyprus.
The artwork analyzes the relationship between reality, illusion and perception within a European social and democratic context in crisis. The event was sponsored by NeMe and received the kind support of the municipality of Limassol.
The performance produced a series of photographs, material objects and videos for art installations.
At the end of the event a series of packages containing flesh were addressed from the residents to the European Central Bank, the IMF and the European Union.
