"INTIMATE ACT", Zagreb, 1999

Performance & Product

An intimate ritual of cutting my hair, repeated by the artist at regular intervals of 2 weeks for the past four years. It was first started as a conscious act of self-punishment, and a subconscious need to break with the past resulting from mental and emotional instability.

The act is performed in a dark and closed space, under a blue spot light, directed vertically from the ceiling. The viewers observe the performance through a single small peeping hole cut out in a panel dividing the public from the artist.

The product of this performance remains as an exhibit until the closing of the exhibition (cut hair and electrical hair-cutting machine in the blue spotlight).
