2010 / 1 hour 10 minutes / live performance / MARTa, Herford, DE

Behind the museum is a river, called Aar. In the middle of the river stands a tub filled with red liquid paint.

I wear a long white dress, made of paper towel.
Like a sculpture I stand in the tub in the red paint.
Slow by slow the dress soak the red paint. After a while the dress turns red from below more and more.

It is pelting down with rain. At the end of the performance the water surface of the river is higher than the level of paint in the tub. So the paint runs out into the river.
