3 hours performance Untitled at Victor-Rousselot Park St-Henri Montreal in Viva! Art Action festival Montreal Canada on Thursday 08 October 2015 12pm to 3pm Filmed by Christian Bujold
In the public park which is also a school playground between 9am until 6pm is a large object. The object is 350cm long and at its highest point it is 250cm and the lowest 60cm.The object is based on an old children's playground ride called the witches hat and this object refers to the concept of the overprotective society a group of work by the artist. On the lowest end of the object is added on the weight of the artist's body weight.
He walks up to the object holding a piece of wood in his right hands. He starts using his left hand to push the object around in a clockwise direction for the whole duration of the performance. After some time the schoolchildren have their break and come out into the playground-park while all the time he is pushing the object around in a clockwise direction. They come out one more time later.
After that he becomes aware that the object is starting to break, where the weights are. Eventually the weights break free and take the lower part of the object with them. He carries on pushing the object around until after some time the weights which are still on the floor start to interfere with the movement of the object going around and he starts to push the object over the weights. Eventually the wood pieces start to break away from the object and eventually he cannot move the object around any more and the performance stops after three hours.
