Performance: Flying off IV

The artist sits at the table reading a newspaper. A strong source of light directed at the audience is placed behind him. He finds it difficult to continue reading as stron g air current coming from a fan located next to him keeps tearing the newspaper from him. The circumstances make him transform the function of the objects and eventually he enters the same world. However, not everything is possible. That’s the way.
