Anita Sto
One Year Performance

ONE YEAR PERFORMANCE 2010-2011, NEW YORK. From November 11th 2010, Anita Sto has been engaged in a one-year performance piece, which mainly consisted in not looking at her-self in any kind of mirrors and/or reflecting surfaces, totally avoiding any eye contact with her-self. “I undertook a research of identification and detection of the boundaries that define the Self, focusing on what is untouchable and invisible than what is-not”.

Along the 365 days, the artist documented all the impressions relative to that experience. Through a diary based on brain storming process, Sto collected fragments of her personal emotions, and using different media. “I painted metaphors and made pictures in order to describe the feelings generated while I wasn’t taking care of having a sur-face”.

“Through the process of division into subject
and object the I comes to know itself. […]”
Plotinus

“The intention of the 365 days performance was to find how and where the Self acts, besides the objectiveness of visual images but through feelings, impressions and considerations”.

The performance ended on November 11th 2011, at 11:00 AM.
