This performance is part of my around-the-clock life. At night I was forced to manufacture and wear special 'sleeping shoes' in order to protect my nails.

The SMALL BLACK DRESS is adjustable and can appear in various shapes and sizes. It is a sculpture and a stage set for a possible performance which might never take place.


Wartende (A Woman Waiting)

A Woman Waiting

2004, Berlin

While waiting I only seemed to be passive. I composed a picture. I bit off and chewed lipsticks in order to colour my saliva. After some 4 hours there was a large patch consisting of various shades of red in front of me. Warmed by the sun, it also existed as a mark of scent.

Warum ausspucken?
Weil wir zuviel Wasser haben.
Markieren S/sie I/ihr Revier?

Why spit?
Because we have too much water.
Are you/they marking your/their territory?

This work is based on the ground plan of my ex-flat in Vienna, 1020, Grosse Sperlgasse 39/15. Since my studio is too small for this sheet of paper, I could not take a picture of it when it is unrolled.
