- WITTSTOCK Herma Auguste, Basic Needs, 2013, Stadtbad Wedding, Berlin.
Basic Needs is structured in three pieces.
As in a mantra I eat, I sleep, I urinate. I repeat this order over and over again.
Eating: I wear a white shirt. I sit at a table. The table is covered with a white cloth. A white plate and a simple glass filled water stand on the table. On the plate are carrots and slices of cucumber. With the left hand I take a carrot and bring it to my mouth. Like a scultpre I stay in this pose.
Sleeping: I wear a white shirt. I lie on the floor, covered with a white cloth. I sleep.
Urinating: I wear a white shirt. I keep it up and put my legs far appart. I urinate on the floor.
