PUBLIC TOILET

 

 

Gallery 21, Oslo, 25. October 1997

A performance without words.

Young people sitting and standing in and outside toilet cubicles. Some alone, others in groups. Everyone looking at the audience, whilst holding their breath. Goksøyr & Martens played the toilet attendants who sat silently, by a small table, chain smoking. For the performance duration, water was running from one of the taps. The sound of the running water was combined with muzak.
The performance lasted two hours, and the audience could move about freely.


Participants: Fifteen young men and women and Goksøyr & Martens.
