Feed Me Please
In Erlangen, Germany, Summer 2014, I organised a line of chairs with different characters sitting on them, with no right to touch the plate placed on their knees in front on them, despite their great hunger. They have to beg walkers in the street to feed them. The gesture of feeding is essential to survival: to be able to bring food to your mouth to consume it. The mother feeding her children, the lovers feeding each other, the patient at the hospital needing intravenous nutrition, this gesture is key to survival. This performance shows how vulnerable we would be without the capacity to perform this gesture.
