He is in the dark

bawls out nothing with a smile. He performs a show: On one leg

look! DO YOU WANT TO SEE

He conjures his day
how it looks even before the day is thought. On one leg
look!  

He continues and smells of the food he eats. DO YOU WANT TO SEE
He trots precariously on a tightrope across an invisible world
a bottomless swamp  

By means of the umbrella in his hand

unfolded like a giant flower

he teeters
does not fall down into anything. Stays where he is!
Here

where he is: ONE GRAND ACT
 

children applauding

and the applause is hard

it even runs out of the nails
bloody*    

*Excerpt form Glenn Christian's text Let's put a smile on that face! written for the exhibition. The text in its entirety will be available in the gallery throughout the exhibition.
