PERFORMING DNA

Carrot. Ginger. Apple. Beetroot. Turmeric. Kale. Spinach. Butternut squash. Fennel. Grapefruit. Orange. Lemon. Cucumber. Blueberry. Raspberry. Pineapple. Water. Coriander.

I have to cleanse, I have to run, I have a medicine cabinet, I have to get through this day. 

My beet is on the root and so I go.
I am drinking my health and so I go.
I am running down the path of recovery and so I go. 

An exploration and response to studies of mental health, food, and sustaining well being in marginalised bodies

About Vivian Chinasa Ezugha


Vivian Chinasa Ezugha is an interdisciplinary artist, whose work takes shape in the form of performance art. Her work looks at the process of living and dying, the embodiment of illness and the role of performance art in supporting marginalised and ill bodies in the wider social context. Graduating from Aberystwyth School of Art in 2014, she has performed internationally as well as nationally. Most recently, she was commissioned by SPILL Festival of Performance Art to produce and showcase a new performance ‘URO’; a project that looks at depression as a form of death and rebirth.
