"SEVEN OUT OF FORTY-NINE" (2016) 

 (Les coulisses d'une performance)

(400x120x240cm)

 

On the 20th of may 2016, I completed 365 passings of an artificial border (a 60 cm high tunnel), carrying a 20 pound bag containing a selection of memories and 7 stones, while wearing a 3 piece suit and a latex mask. After each passing I added a bar to the panel placed on each side to document my travels.

 

The performance was documented by two cameras. During the 2,5 hours it took me to complete the task, I was periodically whistelling Beethoven's "Ode à la joie", which gave the soundtrack for the video.
