Museümli, Buchs, CH
This piece was set in a former electrical generator repair house in between a river and a mill in Buchs. For a full workday, Martina lifted; carried; shifted; moved; put; got; built; placed; installed; brushed; rearranged; organized; took breaks; drank water and ate bread, with different materials and actions representing characteristic industries from that area. With the room constantly changing over the day, Martina also integrated actions of personal maintenance, such as cleaning their nails, brushing their hair and shaving. The audience was able to give cash money as a salary.
