Melissa Ichiuji-Everything to Lose. The artist conceived Everything to Lose as a work of total self-absorption. She describes this performance as a symbolic act of “I” suicide performed in public, explaining that communion with God requires the surrender of identity, delusions, ego, and worldly attachments. Through the use of movement, costume and sound, the artist metaphorically discards layers that separate her from others and from the divine universal spirit that comprises everything.
