Take Off Something You Don’t Need

2011, 5:00 minutes

A blue tarpaulin is laying flat on the ground, covering a space blanket.

I crawl under it and remove my clothing. I stand up, holding the tarpaulin around me. I walk to the end of the path and turn around. I experience the way it feels against my body. I start walking back towards the space blanket and let go of the tarpaulin. I run to the space blanket and pick it up so it hangs directly in front of me. I wrap it around my wrists and stand facing the audience with palms facing outwards. I place it in a bundle on the ground.
