A performance with one male window cleaner.

Inside the windows of the Northern Pavilion Goksøyr & Martens hung up a poster. The image in the poster consisted of a close up of the artists Toril Goksøyr and Camilla Martens. The two women in the image are talking together, and the dialogue is printed on the poster as follows: Goksøyr: "It would be nice to do something important". Martens: "Something political?"

A male window cleaner is cleaning the windows continuously, eight hours every day.
