"Worry" is an interactive performance inspired by a death of the artist’s friend and it was dedicated to him and his family. In the performance, the artist sublimates burdens of the concerns from others in a therapeutic way.
20 inflated balloons with helium gas, a pen and instructions for the audience are prepared before the performance is executed. The audience writes down their own concerns on the floating balloons. They hand it to the artist one by one and she ties the balloons around her neck. The more balloons are hanging around her neck, the tighter it chokes her.
"Worry" performance was conducted and filmed at Galleria Rajatila in Tampere, Finland.
