“BLACK-RED-WHITE”

The performer dressed in white and with the face painted white is sitting between two figures also in white. The background is formed by a black cloth. He marked the action space by plaster fragments of geometrical solids. The actor starts moving from an object to an object accompanied by a monotonous rhythm of electronic music. He seems to be talking with the objects examining and touching them. Moving the objects in different directions. For quite a time he remains in a horizontal position. His communication with the objects turns into exaltation. The performer is slowly moving to the white podium at the black curtain and is cutting a black plastic bag filled with red paint. As the cut grows larger, more paint is flowing down onto white shirt, painting it red. The author finally disappears behind the black curtain leaving “black, red, white” behind him.
