In the frame of André Alves’ Project “Forming the Line” (Helsinki, Alkovi Gallery 2015) I performed the action “FALLING LEAVES” for three hours publicly exposed.
The action consisted of carefully tearing apart rectangles of toilet paper, putting them orderly in space and then glueing them with water onto the gallery’s windows. After three hours, I had covered about 20% of the gallery’s window surfaces, with small holes where paper had already fallen down.
The action, but also the glueing effect as well as the particular rough and fragile surface created by the drying paper is only temporary. Day by day, there will be less leaves. Winter is coming.
