About the project
"I wanted to use the piece of wood to represent a podium I could stand on, like a statue. The white suit fades into the white background and creates a blank canvas ready to be transformed. Aphrodite brought Pygmalion’s statue to life after she was made. Here, I take the form of a statue, and for a 16-minute performance, adopt a certain stillness for the painter to work on. Once colour reaches its peak, there is nothing else to do than disappear."
