TELL ME WHEN YOU DIE is the first part of a performance video trilogy, created and performed by Nadia Granados (Colombia/Mexico) and Amber Bemak (United States).This work explores the juxtapositions between physical limitations and freedom, in both political and corporal contexts. TELL ME WHEN YOU DIE is about walking until you disappear into space. Being swallowed by sea, sky, or earth and the claustrophobia and intimacy of being surrounded by nature. We consider penetration as a cinematic rhythm, and experiment/perform being penetrated by air, water, fingers, and text. Thinking about porn as a genre which can be empowering or degrading in it’s engagement with women and their bodies, we use our own bodies to picture these extremes, at times our bodies are performing power and at times they are not.
