The Big Kiss (20 & 21 June 2009) Live Internet Broadcast Performance by Annie Abrahams (Ljubljana)
“Machine mediated kissing in a performance = drawing with your tongue = taking pleasure, while constructing an image = a way to be superaware of the other = never totally abandoning yourself = ???????? = not at all like real kissing, it is better! This might be a female point of view.” Annie Abrahams
