Frau Freitag, Karlsruhe, Germany
1 pair of tights
1 balloon filled with glitter
1 balloon filled with water
A water filled balloon is hanging from the ceiling.
I step into the room and position myself next to the balloon.
I bow down and cut the tight on the level of my ankles. I take the incurred socks off and now use them as gloves.
I start to turn and to position my butt under the water-filled balloon. I grab the glitter-filled balloon and start to inflate it till it bursts.
I’m balancing the water-filled balloon on my back till it approaches my neck. I straighten myself slowly and balance the water-filled balloon around my neck.
At one point I squeeze the balloon with my arms till it bursts and the water washes me.
I pull off my gloves and leave the room.
