As soon as an artist completes a work of art and presents it to his audience with a polite bow, he shows a peek into his soul. Perhaps even more than in the visual arts, a performance artist exposes himself bravely. He does this without the filter of time and distance that the visual artist can hide behind. And exposing this piece of his soul is like untying the bow, whatever that may reveal.
