The period bird brings fertility to everyone.
The performance of period bird was a period-delivery ritual/witchcraft through objects, I entered the space with bamboo wings, poured diluted iron-oxide paint on to a bowl of underwears, and started hanging underwears with my wings. The underwears are in different shapes, styles and colours, representing the imaginary inclusiveness of menstruation. The difficulty of hanging symbolises the incontinence of fertility and sexual desires. As the performance went on, the crowd cheered each time when I securely placed a pair of underwear on the drying string; the cheers made me happy, almost like some sort of encouragement/validation during the process of maturing.
