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.
These pictures were taken during a performance which started by putting on some makeup and artificial eyelashes.
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.
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.
Weil wir zuviel Wasser haben.
Markieren S/sie I/ihr Revier?
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.
