Heat Me

Domshof, Bremen
Performance time

During one hour, I am slowly leaning and standing up, getting my face in touch with a full tank of ice cubes. This self-improving experience (the skin gets gradually assaulted by the cold) is interacting with the eye-contacts I make with the audience. As long as I feel observed, I keep leaning, and when I stand up, I try to catch the attention of the visitors. This process keeps an ongoing tension together with the mechanical rhythm of the body. The perfect control of the movement contrast with the out of control melting down of the ice. The whole performance is a game with time processing and demand on physical condition.
