In Rhythm 10 (1973), performance artist Marina Abramović explored the dynamics of pain, violence and self-destruction.

At once a feat of extraordinary concentration and a scene of repetitious self-mutilation, Rhythm 10 amplifies the way in which women sometimes engage in self-sabotage. From foot-binding to obsessive dieting, diverse cultural energy has been dedicated to deforming women’s bodies, often with women’s own masochistic consent.

Since I can’t post the videos made for the task I’ve designed, this seems close enough… on multiple levels.
