black plastic foil, loaves of bread
70 x 280 cm

In this performance, I investigate the finiteness and fragility of our life and work with my own memory, cultural associations and images in social media. The stale bread that is deformed and partially broken conjures up associations with body parts, while the colour reminds of skin. I carry each single loaf into the room from outside and put it on the surface of the black plastic foil as a ritual. After a while (1 to 2 hours) I fulfill the reversed ritual of carring the loaves of bread out of the room slowly.
