Last parting is a premarital performance in which myself and Katia execute a series of symbolic tasks in front of an audience. We start by cutting up a set of chain-links with electric cutters to the live performance of the Mendelssohn march.  The left pieces of chain-link we then distributed equally on a set of scales. Аfter which we signed in blood a marital agreement that had a common phrasing changed to "till death unite us".
