In this controversial performance, Finley covers her body in chocolate as a powerful metaphor for the victimization of women and other “outsiders.” This piece, conceived as a response to the case of 16-year-old Tawana Brawley who was found in a Hefty bag covered with feces, ignited a provocative debate on issues of censorship and art that went all the way to the Supreme Court.
