As soon as an artist completes a work of art and presents it to their audience with a polite bow, they show a peek into their soul. Perhaps even more so than in the visual arts, a performance artist bravely exposes themselves. They do this without the filter of time and distance that the visual artist can hide behind. And exposing this, is like untying the bow, whatever that may reveal.
