Les Réformés De La Bonne Mère

2008 / 1 hour 30 minutes / live performance / Friche la Belle de Mai, Terminus du Tram, Mairie 1er/7ème, Marseille, FR

A pompous fountain stands in the middle of a public square.

I am swimming naked in the fountain water.

I climb onto the second plane of the fountain, next to the sculptures, and stand there, lifting my left arm. My arm points at the church on the other side of the square. I freeze in this position.

After a while, I swim again in the fountain. I repeat this action several times.
