"What's in my head #3" 'Perfo09', international Performance Art Festival, Pori, Finland 2009 Photo: Jan Virtanens - writing the word "illusion" into the air - slapping myself after each letter - using soil to write the each letter on the wall - smashing an onion to my head - gluing a table and a chair from cardboard on the wall - attach flowers to the table - placing seven plates on the floor - piling up black soil on each plate - pouring gasoline on each pile and set them aflame - running towards the wall without stopping - several times - scratching roughly the left side of my chest - grinning with black teeth - covering my head with white cream - dipping my face into the soil - tearing off the petals of the flowers - leaving the space while blowing the petals at the audience

It's not the action that makes the performance
