One Piece at a Time
One Piece at a Time

I performed this work as part of Epicenter Revolutions. I sat in cold garage, in a chair with my pants and underwear around my ankles for four hours. I used bright orange tweezers to take individual pieces of pickling salt out of a container and into my crotch. While I was doing this, three other artists in different parts of the world also performed. Their performances were projected onto and behind me. Photo by Richard Mugwaneza

Tug-A-War
Tug-A-War

Tug-A-War is a race between Tess Martens, Holly Timpener and Matthew Moir; attached to each other in the window of La Centrale. For three hours, they will each pull a two-meter rope tied in the middle. A video installation will accompany this performance, where they will change direction to reach the keys of a keyboard in an attempt to communicate with each other. Through this performance, they will try to stay connected against an incessant force. Photo by Richard Mugwaneza
