The performances staged by the author consist of motionless poses, lasting from an hour to several hours and described by their author as 'still performance'. Their characteristic features include the use of painted overalls as costumes which serve the purposes of mimicry and make it possible to conceal oneself. Mimesis and motionlessness create a connection between the performances and painting. The author refers to living sculptures by Gilbert and George or the performance pieces by Chris Burden from the 1960s. The published text is a record of one of the still performances entitled 'Sciana' (The Wall), featured in 2003 as part of the 'Neighbours for neighbours' festival.
