Performance | | | 1'20'' | Poland | 2015
A day during autumn, Krakow, Poland. I looked at the hedge and at one moment, suddenly, I felt the need to throw myself at him. It was a need dictated strictly by kinesthetic experience. A whim of immersion in the thicket that will absorb me into its lumps. Then it becomes a habit.
