Performance of the repetitive removal of blood orange peels. This specific piece references intermittent explosive disorder, which is found more often in men and is characterized by “extreme rage without provocation,” and physical symptoms such as heart palpations and hearing echoes. Blood oranges are used as they reference the human dermis with its many layers as well as the idea of interior versus exterior. When the peels are removed or the blood orange is smashed, its’ interior which houses the bright, fleshy fruit is revealed, showing what really lies beneath.
