AUSRITT AUF DER BAHNHOFSTRASSE

Excuse me, can you help me carry this lady, please?

 

Performance on Bahnhofstr. In Zurich. I hired a woman and let her carry me on her back from the railroad station to the lake and back again. On the way, she’d ask passers-by to help out. I am interested in the closest possible contact between me and the person carrying me, and how the refusals take place, and who are the pedestrians on one of Zurich’s most famous streets.
