To say I’m without fear–
it wouldn’t be true.
I’m afraid of sickness, humiliation.
Like anyone, I have my dreams.
But I’ve learned to hide them,
to protect myself
from fulfillment: all happiness 
attracts the Fates’ anger.
They are sisters, savages–
in the end, they have
no emotion but envy.

Still Death! Darfur Still Deaf?, 2007, Vanessa Beecroft (1969- )

Still death! Darfur still deaf? is a performance held by Vanessa Beecroft at the Pescheria di Rialto during the days of Venice Biennale. Approximately thirty Sudanese women with skin colored by black make up lie atop a white canvas on the ground: they lie, faces down, like dead bodies, piled one on top of the other. Their eyes are shut and their bodies are motionless; there is no talking and no sound. A wide, red paint stroke horizontally crosses the canvas and the women’s bodies, invoking a Viennese Actionism-performance painting

Here’s a video on the work.
