Performances presented live in a real space of a gallery, in real time based on the process of sorting, collecting, relating and placing poppy seeds having their own, rich symbolism. In this case they symbolise peoples’ lives – countless, just like poppy seeds, victims of war. Artist – Arithmetician, through counting poppy seeds is relating to humanity’s common and basic survival instincts. He is questioning and disturbing the borders between everyday life and art. The performance is stimulated by an object – a busk of poppy – and a ‘laboratory’ – a projection of a film and photographic documentation, traces of an endless process.
