The Lace Length
The performance was conducted as an entrance exam for the course “Performances and installations” at the studio of Yuri Sobolev, in the Theater of synthesis and animation “Interstudio,” September 1997.
An unusually lengthy shoe-lace was used to determine the boundaries of public space of my body. One end of the one-kilometer-long synthetic rope was tied to a lamppost, and the other end inserted into the lace hole of my shoe. I was running at high speed along the street of the city of Pushkin, until one of the passers-by stepped on the rope. The length of the “lace” thus ended, and I fell to the pavement.
The entrance exam was passed successfully.
