Anti-Autobiographical II is the second performance from the „Anti-Autobiographical“ series and a visual response to a strong exposed position in a shopping mall, in between other shopping windows, customized minds and expectations. It follows the question of per-constructed conventions and conditions we take for granted; like rituals, collective memories or social obligations (like Christmas for example).
Course: I enter the space and sit down on a plinth. After few moments I start to touch my pillow-head and cut two lines at the position where my eyes would be. I reach in the cuts and take out feathers, constantly. Thereby my hands widen the cuts and go slowly deeper and deeper into the inside of the pillow. Here I find parts of a Maria, Jesus and a donkey figure. I take them slowly out and replace my body by them on the plinth. I walk at the other end of the shopping window, sit down and open the pillow with a scalpel ones more. Finally I fill the pillow with a black VHS tape which rolls down from my hand.
