• Rape


In June 2013 Li participated in a play at Kubrick in Beijing. Her performance “Rape” comes from Zhang Xian’s script of the same title. In the background was a man’s voice reading the script. Five jars were placed on the floor, filled respectively with animal entrails, dishwater, menstrual blood, shit and urine. She walked to each of them and poured the contents onto herself. She kept washing her breasts and private parts until she stank. Near the last jar were scattered thorns. She picked them up, made them into a thorn wreath, placed it on her head and left. This work is dedicated to those female political prisoners who were raped and assaulted, had their throats cut and drenched with shit and urine before they were killed.
