Hommage an Imre Kertesz

Group show, Campolongo di S.Germano dei Berici
Vicenza, Italy

While reading a chapter of Imre Kertesz' novel "Fatelessness" which relates the author's youth in a concentration camp, I kept on moving in front of a plastic sheet. A person sitting behind it drew my silhouette with a black marker, one for each posture. By the end of the performance, words had been said, we were gone, and the only thing that recalled what had happened were shadows on a plastic sheet.
