2000, BOSTON - Illusion of Freedom
BOSTON / INTERNATIONAL ART EXCHANGE PROGRAM BETWEEN MOBIUS AND ARTISTS FROM SKOPJE, MACEDONIA , ILLUSION OF FREEDOM
I walk on the street while beating a big noisy drum. Pretending my thoughts are independent, I accompany the drum beating with shouts of slogans elevating freedom and democracy in the United States. At the same time, my head is connected by leashes from four different cardinal points. The leashes are held by four people who, by pulling the ropes, effectively control all my movement on the street. The whole performance is accompanied by an audio mix of howling wolves and ?The Star Spangled Banner? played at variable speeds.
