For The Cow I Didn’t Get Or Grüezi Giswil

2008 / 30 minutes / live performance / Turbine Giswil, Giswil, CH

Wearing only jeans, I stand in the middle of a huge hall. My hands are stretched upwards and hold a knife. Over my head huge black plasic bag hangs from a crane.

I swivel my hips, the jeans slide down to the floor and I am naked.

I poke the knife into the bag and tug and drag the wet grass out of the bag. A mound of grass is building up in front of me.

I sit on the grass and wipe off my menstruation blood with the grass. After this I wash myself with the same grass.

I eat grass, drink milk from a bag, clean myself with the grass, suck on my nipples and snuggle with the grass.
