The Age of Ordinary (2005)

Aktionsbank, Berlin

 

I enter wearing a spiderman costume and carrying a small spiderman actionfigure. I pose the figure and emulate his poses myself; comparing my average body with his little stud body. I then try to climb a wall. After failing, I try again...and again...and again...42 times (one attempt for every year I have been alive). Exhausted, panting and sweating, I slowly peel away the tight Spidey-skin and reveal my own naked body. I pose the action figure and again emulate his poses before putting on my ordinary clothes and exiting.
