Performance, 8'48"

In this performance, we see an individual in gray clothes in front of a gray wall where he interacts with an emergency thermal blanket. When handling this blanket, pops are heard, similar to those of a plastic bag being crushed. Made of a thin film of metallized PET plastic, the thermal blanket is used to maintain body heat. It is also frequently used by the police to cover the bodies of fatal victims of accidents or crimes. In this performance, the blanket takes on the meaning of a funeral wrapper of a body that still in a state of animation.
