10/65 Self-Mutilation

A Günter Brus 'action' informed this surrealistic drama of symbolic self-destruction. Each gesture is paced so that one gets a tense, iconoclastic revelation of a man covered in white plaster lying surrounded by razor blades and a range of instruments seemingly taken from an operating theatre.
