Dust to Dust Video

On Thursday May 13th I executed a four-hour performance in the basement of the Gallery BWA in Piotrkow Trybunalski, Poland as part of the Interakcje Performance Art Festival. After lighting incense in three of the four remaining coffins I proceeded to dismantle the fourth coffin into its pieces. After carefully removing all of the nails and screws I used a hand held surface planer to reduce all of the pieces into dust. Due to the small, crypt like nature of the space, the room quickly became thick with sawdust and smoke.
