In the video-performance “Naked Lunch” the artist, in a joyful and dreamlike atmosphere, stages an imaginary lunch: she eats alone without caring about the very act of eating so that she does not even realize that her dish is empty.
Most of our daily actions are meaningless and mechanical; we are deceived that what we do can nourish us, but it is rarely like that. In a few moments of awareness, we realize that our food does not exist, but we lose soon our clarity of thought. Everything repeats eternally and the rewind remarks that it is all fictitious.
