How Easy it would be to be Garbage

Performance and photographs
Montreal, 2002


I was recovering from surgery and feeling terribly material and ephemeral. I experimented with garbage bags to see how easily I might fit into one. Could I be thrown away like anything else?

I got into a bag and posed among the local garbage.

The discreet performance was enacted for photography in the Marché Jean Talon neighbourhood, in 2002 in Montreal.
