Mary Coble, Note to Self

Note to Self is a performance that deals with gay, lesbian, bi and transgender people who have died due to hate crimes committed against them. Coble compiled a list of 436 names of these individuals, through research on various websites, news reports and official and unofficial documentation. The list started and ended with the word “anonymous” to acknowledge the many lives that were taken that the list didn’t include.

During a solid twelve-hour timeframe these names were tattooed, with no ink, onto the surface of Coble’s body. She had these names inklessly tattooed on her body as a reference to the brutality of these murders; many of the victims had slurs such as dyke or faggot carved into their bodies.After each name was completed, a Blood Painting was made by pressing a sheet of paper directly against the fresh abrasion. These prints were then places on the walls of the gallery. As the list of name compiled on her body the same list was mirrored on the gallery walls. The first three hours of this performance was open to the public while the last nine hours were webcast so the audience could watch via the net.

Sometimes it is nice to just do a drawing and not worry about making a painting or having a title or doing anything except being self indulgent and drawing what you want. Which is always girls with nice butts and tiny flowers and gothy tattoos.
