Getsemani, in Armenian, gat semane, in the sacred texts means garden of olive trees. It is said that Jesus withdrew there after the Last Supper, before being betrayed by Judas. Tola realizes this performance in the hall of a boxing club, which for the artist is like a place of worship, in which she usually works, a familiar place that perfectly suits her emotional and visual needs. The artist begins the performance transforming the space with a series of installations, using red silk fabrics and candles, then paints on her body with traces which she will then devour, so that Judas cannot perform his deed.
