Description of Action


I am standing on a pile of charcoals placed in the middle of the gallery space. As soon as the audience members enter the room, I make an eye contact with each person. Then I start walking in circles while grating the charcoal on the grater. The charcoal becomes dust. I repeat the same action until all pieces of charcoal become dust. Then I enter the circle and with my hand I shape the following phrase on the circle of dust, in Greek language: "That which exists may be lost, and that which is being lost may be exist."
