Posnan, Poland : 1980

3 hour performance, made as part of an exhibition of drawings at Galeria Rysunku.


MacLennan entered the room dressed in black. In silence he proceeded to undress, to blacken his head, heads, feet and genitals with paint, then to redress himself – now in a pair of white sheets decorated with numerous rubber pigeons. He stood still, then walked ritually around the perimeter of the room, finally removing the sheets.
