Searching For My Soul

4th March 2008 – 29th January 2024

Performance/Sculpture

Medium: Maurice Doherty
Location: Everywhere I am between 4th March 2008 – 29th January 2024
Duration: 15.9  years

Searching For My Soul involves endeavouring to exist for a further 15.9 years. During this time trillions of cells in my body will die and be renewed. No cells will be left in my body that had been there 15.9 years previously. I will be physically made up of new matter.

My epithelial cells like skin will have the shortest life-spans, dying and being renewed in as little as 5 days. Non-epithelial cells such as cells within my intestinal tissue will take the longest to change, taking up to 15.9 years. The cell transformation should be most evident in my face.
