In ‘Tuesday’, I tirelessly cut my underwear, taking one piece of clothing at a time, from the left pile, tearing it, cutting it, and then letting it fall in pieces onto the right pile, which keeps getting bigger.
As a child I learned to cut my underwear before throwing it away from my mother, who learned from my grandmother, a habit that reflects one of the superstitious idiosyncrasies of Mexican culture.
In the video, this action acquires tones of violence, sensuality, feminism and isolation.
