Tamy Ben-Tor's New Performance Work
Says the artist: "My consciousness is a sponge absorbing all of contemporary filth. The artistic process for me, in the form of a performance, is to solidify this sponge into a hard stamp tool and press it back onto the audience's consciousness for the duration of the performance. At the end, I hope they come out of it stained, impressed, as I am, by the ailments of this time which we live in."
