HOPEFULLY NOTHING WILL HAPPEN

Durational performance with Laure Catugier presented at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac. Keeping a distance from each other of at least 10 meters we communicated using only walkie-talkies. Like mutually connected marionettes we told the other person what to do, how to interact with the gallery audience. For example I’d say “Go to the woman with the small child and ask her if the kid is for sale and for how much?”, or Laure would say “Lay in front of that car and don’t let it leave”. We were obliged to do what the other said, there was no veto power, just the basic rule of not hurting the audience. The action lasted from 2 to 7 pm.
