10th - 11th October 2020.

During an intervention at PAKT, to which we were invited by Brenda Tempelaar, we engaged the audience in a ritual to drink an infusion together. It was the second part of an invisible, unconscious performance that took place six weeks earlier during the opening of Stephan Blumenschein's solo exhibition. The installation that we presented at the finissage, consisting of a blue elixir and a text in which the audience present at the opening was warned by Pakt of a possible danger afterwards, functioned as a self-portrait of the past six weeks, which were dominated by the contradictory feelings related to our Covid-19 infection: guilt, control, risk, and uncertainty.
