In spring 2014, the artist did performance interventions in Rome. She was sitting and cutting a white men’s shirt into weft. Her figure, dressed in black and head covered with a scarf did not draw attention, but people occasionally stopped to see what she was doing. In Piazza Navona the life around the artist was busy, and her cameraman succeeded reasonably well in looking like just a curious tourist.
