I am sitting on the stairways inside the building. If visitors approach me I welcome them with: "It was really not nice to meeting you."

I come with a three section laundry egg. Put it on the sidewalk and get into it. Sitting inside, I speak with the people passing by: "Do you like to sit with me?"

I am standing on the street corner of 42nd Street and 5th Avenue. First the people hesitate to take the dollars. They ask for the reason of this action. With my response, they get the legitimation to take the dollar. After 8 minutes and 55 seconds the bills are all taken.

$20: 5min 20sec

I'm standing on a street corner of New York and give $20 dollars in one dollar bills to people as they were advertising flyers. After 5min 20sec they are all spread out.

I am standing on a street corner of New York and try to sell my clothes directly from my body. Most of the people are disgusted. A few men like to see me nude, but refuse when they recognize I am taking it seriously. At the end I sold my
t-shirt, my socks, my belt, and my hairband.

Körperkontakt/Body Contact
Open Studios for friends, PS1, New York

I'm standing dressed normally in the exhibition, and ask individual visitors: "Would you please give me a hug?." If he/she embraces me I stay cold, do not react. This work was alrady performed in Munich a year ago.
