Performance No Title 1 by Elin Kristine Kromann

Performance 1998. No title


The Performance starts when I arrive with an old vacuum cleaner. I cover all the sharp edges in the small room (H.2, 5 x L.2,5 x W. 1,5m) with a soft material. I then remove a weather balloon from my bag and inflate it with the vacuum cleaner. When the balloon has filled the space and is touching the window at one end and is past the door frame at the other, I turn off the vacuum cleaner, tie up the end of the balloon, pack up my stuff and leave.


Performed in Bunkern (old underground military base) in Lund, Sweden, at the groupexhibition Konst på Bunkern (Art in the Bunker).
