Your Balls are too Heavy to Carry / 2011 / Straat van Sculpturen, Amsterdam, NL

One body is being zipped up into a tunnel made of stretchy fabric that is attached at the other end by heavy sand. The body starts investigating the limits that is set by the long extension. With slow movements it investigates different positions sensing the tension operating between the weight of the sand and its own weight. Bodily restraints, tension and balance are central.
