This exhibition took
place over the course of 2 months. 6 artists would prepare for 1
week and exhibit for one day. Straws were drawn to decide the exhibition
order. Materials used by each of the artists were to be left in
the space to be used by the following artist. The entire exhibition
had the sense of a game.
was the first work to be exhibited in the "Nemesis" process.
Each of the artists involved initally left one item in the space
to be used in this exhibition. Items included: 250kg flour, 30 cleavers,
1 double bed, 1 wooden scaffold and 6 mosquito lamps.
Using the available items
left by the other artists, this work became a tri-level scafolding
consisting of a pool of live eels in water at the very top, the
double bed with a television in the center, and a mule standing
amongst piles of flour on the ground level. During the performance,
a woman lays on the double bed in the middle level. At the exact
time of the exhibition opening, a 10 alarm clocks buried in the
flour were set to go off. Upon hearing the alarm clocks, the woman
rises from the bed and descends to the ground level where she joins
a man. The two get on their hands and knees and start cautiously
sifting through the flour piles looking for the alarm clocks and
the 30 cleavers that have also been buried in the flour. When either
a cleaver or an alarmclock is discovered it is thrown into a pile
on the other side of the room. After all the items are found, the
woman returns to the double bed and lies back down.
