The uniqueness in Derigo's Performance Pieces is that she addresses directly the level of human consciousness. Each of her Performances creates a complicity between the spectator and the work, a synchronisation of premise and the proposed ritualized gesture. These are true life experiences for those that participate. Derigo's intention is to place the spectator at the centre of the action creating a state of total introspection which results in change and transformation, offering a new perspective. In the realm of spirituality, Derigo ventures beyond that of art creating a necessity.
