Gastritis

2000

Medium: performance, video documentation, DVD video
Duration: 3:32 min.


The closed space made of polyethylene is full of civilization garbage and bones of animals. A character in clothes protecting from biological poisoning is senselessly cutting animal bones and is making aimless explosions from time to time.
In Gastritis I have made an attempt to show the pointless struggle of the civilization with its consequences. Ignoring the causes and fighting only against the processes polluting the environment and threatening life, mankind is satisfied with fireworks and demonstration of power.
