miss Put Your Foot Down, Hunt's most ambitious performance
to date. His performance, in a car filled with water, will happen
twice. During the rest of the exhibition you will be able to
view video documentation of the event and its apparatus. Hunt
has made a name for himself with his musical performances in
extreme conditions. In his performances Hunt treats the song
as a readymade. He performs songs in situations of self-inflicted
stress: drifting off into the horizon on a raft; in a dustbin
full of water, suspended upside down; with his head in a bucket.
He plays with the postures of the macho performance artist, the
tragic hero, the comedian, the rock star. His feats of endurance
are intense and suspenseful acts of communication.
