Performance

 

 

A fixes T to a table. Equipped with a needle, thread and a headlamp, she follows the body‘s contours by sewing the garments to the tablecloth. Sewing represents an interaction between A and T, an intimate contact is established. Since the headlamp is the only source of light in the dark room, the audience‘s view correlates with A‘s view.
The attention is drawn to the contact of the two protagonists, for all visual stimuli are reduced to the act of sewing.
