Installation

This installation piece by performance and visual artist Clara García Fraile documents the transformation of two grams of hashish smuggled in a woman’s vagina from the Netherlands across numerous borders to other countries. With each entry into a new legal system, the official status and economic value of hashish changes significantly, and although its basic composition always remains the same, the journey inside the body gradually and irrevocably affects its shape. Thus, hash bears witness to the influence of a nation-state organised world on the movements of bodies and objects.
