Berries of Wrath, 2012/13

Performance, ca. 25 min

bowl with 1lb strawberries, spoon, white shirt

Without prior notice I prepare a bowl with fresh strawberries in a public space. I start eating the uncut fruits with a spoon. After chewing the first mouthful pappy, I let everything splash back into the bowl. I continue eating out of this bowl. After a while everything has been chewed down to a slurry, but I continue stoically. Due to the fact that - inspite of every spitting out - there remain always "left-overs" inside my mouth, the content of the bowl starts vanishing bit by bit. The performance is finished when the bowl is empty.
