Smiling Firefighters | 2020

Smiling Firefighters is a performance piece in which the firefighters are serving water at the show opening. It plays with the idea of the banality of participation in collective ignorance as we often perceive social, political, and ecological “fires” just as an image of malfunctioning systems; the ones that are supposed to bring the “fires” down. Thus performance could be understood as designing of a system failure.
