performance instructions #1

angel syndrome's picture

1) you are naked except for a blindfold
2) the artist hands you a piece of chalk
3) the artist draws on your back
4) through my sense of touch, you try to imitate the lines she is drawing with the chalk on a concrete floor
5) she tries to create something beautiful, something you cannot see
6) the artist struggles, begins to force me into the act of creation - you do not see this world, yet are entirely under her will

[...] you both try

7) forty-five minutes later, the blindfold is removed, you am bleeding from being dragged across the floor, everything is grey, white and red
8) the performance is documented with two photographs, one of your body, one of the floor
9) the floor is washed clean, you go home and take a shower
10) nothing ever really happened, nothing was lost or gained

Always good...

to see you return on occasion, and share your provocative thoughts.
