OUTPOST 1 (2004)
Medium: Public Performance (mixed media including ladder, blood, gold leaf, honey, chalk powder, pencils, sisal rope, meat)
Duration: 120 minutes
Performance held as part of “Intervention”, part of a series of group exhibitions curated by Hanli Becker, Simon Gush & Hannes Steyn in honor of South Africa`s Decade of Democracy at the Johannesburg Art Gallery, Johannesburg (2004). For two hours the artist repeated a series of actions, creating a pathway out of blood between a ladder and a bucket of blood. These actions were all focused on his feet implying something of a journey: between the ladder and the large bucket containing blood were a number of stainless steel vessels all containing different materials such as honey, pencils, chalk powder, gold leaf. The artist covered his feet with these material as he traversed the path repeatedly.
