“Wall-Floor Positions”

During the retrospective on Bruce Nauman, Disappearing Acts in Schaulager Basel, I performed for six months a re-enactment of his piece Wall-Floor Positions: 36 positions, from a series of 130 positions – an elementary investigation into physical and spatial laws. The positions must be held between 45 and 60 seconds. The work is meditative.
