O.T.

2008 / 45 minutes / live performance / University of Applied Sciences, Nijmegen, NL

Wearing a thin beige dress, I stand in the corner of a room in a frozen position. After a while I take the lowest corner of the dress and put it in my mouth. I put more and more of the dress into my mouth. Finally the dress disappears into my mouth.

Then I pull the dress out of my mouth again, as well as a long black string (cassette tape). While I am dragging the tape out of my mouth, I wrap it around my body.

Because of dancing and shaking, the tape and the dress fall off my body and I’m naked.
