Born in 1948

The performance was thought to be divided into three parts. It took place in the ruins of an old brick building with dilapidated walls and burnt wooden beams in the old part of the city. The first part – “driving” the spectators through a tunnel to the inner yard, where they could watch two figures in long linen frocks hanging on rubber hoses. They were both reading out evangelical texts combined with Berrows’s porno-homosexual texts. The texts were slowly turning into a schizophrenic murmur and lament. Through an empty window of the second floor the spectators could see a real street with occasional pedestrians and cars. The recital lasted two hours. The toll of church bells and the twilight stopped the action.
