Image Of Roma

2010 / 5 hours / live performance / Fondazione VOLUME!, Roma, IT

I lie sideways on a Roman couch. I wear a strapless, long dress which I crocheted. It has three different colours. From the breast till the belly botton it is red, from the belly botton till the knees it is white and from the knees till the floor it is green. My hair has a high putting hair-style from the 50’s.

Bit by bit I unravel the dress. A green wool ball come into beeing and the dress gets shorter and shorter. I spool the white ball faster. The dress is shorter, only till the knees.
The red and last part I unravel fastest. Bit by bit my whole body is visual till I lie naked sideways on the Roman couch and the dress are just three wool balls. I put the wool balls between my legs. I stay in this position.
