The artist performs at the centre of the stage, hanging on the roof.

In front of him “The fourth wall” (in the theatrical language it is the imaginary wall that separates the stage from the audience). He tries to dismantle this wall with his still look and presence. He replaces himself in the temple of representation. Liturgical value of the action, mysterious dimension of the space and slowness of the performance are stressed by the sound of a church that carries a certain feeling of the ineffable.
