In ‘Lips of Thomas’, Abramović characteristically pushes the body to extreme limits. The performance involves Abramović carving the Star of David onto her naked body. By using her body as a canvas, she is exposing avowedly political themes relating to physical torture. The religious symbol is highlighted in the drawing of blood.
