Work-in-Progress Show 2009
Royal College of Art, London
The viewer enters the curtained space and encounters the artist sitting opposite an empty chair. When the viewer sits down, the artist starts a timer that is on a side table. The timer counts down one minute. During this minute, the artist and viewer lock gazes. When the timer rings, the artist hands a camera to the viewer, who takes a photograph of the artist, and hands it back to him. The artist then takes a photo of the viewer. The viewer exits.
Beside the curtained area is a one minute looped video of the artist smashing a large unfired clay pot.
