The diptych Soliloquy is consists of the needles used in Raven performance. An performance where I turn into becoming a bird, becoming an animal, evoking through crow's image and metaphor questions of transmutation, denunciation, healing and freedom. Related to the current Brazilian context, the object that is an development of the performance as an insurgent and blasphemous act of some body oppressions with himself, as well as recognition of social weights and body conditions historically silenced and minorized. The wings oscillate between flight and fall. Are like thin acupuncture needles, painful but healing. The Raven is one bird that loses its wings, a bird in transition between death and rising.
