The durational performance ‘De Profundis’ (2017) is a commission by the ‘THE RAFT / ART IS (not) LONELY’ curated by Jan Fabre & Joanna De Vos and Muzee (Oostend, BE).
The performance started on 10 November 2017 at the Court House of Ostend (BE) and ended on 29 November – 6 pm (liberated by curator Joanna Devos in the presence of judge Greet Vlaeminck).
In the court house of Ostend,
I will attach myself to a block of Carrara marble.
Day and night, 24/7,
I will live and work in this space.
Eating, sleeping, drawing.
Working. No phone, no computer.
With a hammer and chisel, I will try to set myself free.
