Performance made for the exhibition GRAND TOUR, Museum of Fine Arts in Ghent (BE), 2003

Performance about why we give to people..Why we smile so often. Why does it help to smile and be good...even if you don't feel like. If you like to cry...
In the performance I smile, play and give compliments and nice words to the audience. They melt like butter. Everywhere they feel beauty and harmony...even when it is tortured beauty or fake harmony.... And then suddenly I start to demonstrate a thing you can put in your mouth to reach the perfect smile...The only thing that happens is that your mouth hurts and lightly starts to bleed. You produce a lot of salivahSo you smile and drools at the same time. We are all caught up in our own structures from time to time,trapped in our own web of being friendly and smiling.
