Daniel Weissbach and I put on monkey costumes and tried to paint self-portraits. Meanwhile, the gallery owner electrically ignited 62 black paint bombs, which were hidden behind two walls. The colour bombs exploded behind our backs and frightened us with each detonation. In the end the room was totally destroyed. However, we realized to paint two abstract self-portraits.
