Foolish Suicide Attempts

Notes

Eve gives suicide a go; Her attempts are a foolish performance for the camera. This film is the full version that appears in Act One of Trans-Acts. Trans-Acts casts the Artist in the role of three necessary transgressors: the Dunce, the Devil & the Fool or seen another way as Sad Eve, Bad Eve & Mad Eve.
