360°

Video-performance 2006

 

I ordered a bus the task of which is to turn around. The driver is following my instructions and the passengers are present as a part of the performance (which was actually my diploma thesis). Passengers get in the bus unawares and the bus starts to turn around by 360° so that it runs over a flower bed planted in front of the school. The flower bed is planted by me in a place where it could be but never has. In the final move the bus runs into the pavement, street curb, as well as the flower bed. The flowers bed is destroyed and thus a new picture is created, the final result of the whole show. The passengers serve as a weighting material and, therefore, participate in the destruction.
