Anita’s One-Year Performance is a test of endurance. In this work, which ended this past fall, she avoided seeing her own image in mirrors or other reflective surfaces for one year. During this time period, she recorded her experience through writing and photographs (all of the pictures that she took were with a film camera and developed and printed at the end of the performance).
Here are my favorite excerpts from her One-Year Performance draftbook in which she wrote each of the 365 days.
The moon didn’t disappear — she is simply in the dark.
And also — I cannot look at my ass, without mirrors.
Anything that you see in the mirror, is happening in the past. Do not trust mirrors.
SPYING AND OBSERVING MYSELF
I AM GETTING SERIOUSLY TIRED OF IT.

And then, I will see my image in the mirror again
