  1. Preparing for Mars: human sleep and performance during a 13 month stay in Antarctica


    I asked Matthieu Ronsse to portray me in my installation ‘Es tut mir so leid (for there are bodies all about but no shoes left tidy by the mat)’. The set-up is based on the etching ‘Mars Sleeping’ by the Dutch Golden Age engraver Jacob de Gheyn III, from a 1972 calendar inspired by the Greek and Roman Mythology in Ancient Dutch Art, that I used for my performance ‘Cake’. The performance is dedicated to my father, who passed away a few months before.
