privat impact Performance Art Festival / Szczecin, poland / 2005 / 7 minutes

I am wearing two suits one upon the other; a bright one and underneath a darker one; I am standing in front of the audience and i look into the eyes of each visitor; I take off the white suit and put it on the floor; it looks like my shadow; i arrange the bright suit; I kneel down on it and put my knees on the upper arms of the jacket; With both hands and with full force I bash a big cobblestone on the spot where the head is supposed to be; After repeating this a couple of times I stand up and leave while strewing countless white flowers all over the floor that highlight my way out
