The unveiling of ‘No Fantasy, No Reality’

*

At the opening the object just stood there, a shiny black column of plastic foil.

The artist distributed the goody ‘Nothing/Everything’ to start the initiation.

The first action was to cut through the top layer, which revealed a second layer on which was painted an impression of waves on water. On this was stenciled the text: ‘No Fantasy, No Reality’. The second action was to cut through this layer, encountering a third sheet of plastic foil, painted and stenciled with the text: ‘Inner Worlds revealed’.

The third action was to tape back the previous layers, and cutting through this last layer, revealing the Globe, a realistic impression of the earth hanging in space. All actions were accompanied by the soundtrack ‘Initiations Incantations’, which played through the performance from a tape deck within the installation.

The artist then distributed the ‘goody’ ‘Nothing on your Mind…’ to the attendants, who received it in good cheers.
