Baba Antropofágica, 1973

 

The Brazilian artist Lygia Clark first developed Baba Anthropofágica in 1973 with a group of her students at the Sorbonne in France. With one person laying face-up on the floor, the others hold spools of thread in their mouths, slowly pulling out the saliva-coated thread to eventually cover the entire body of the person on the floor. At the end of this time, the threads are collectively lifted.
