Keen as Mustard 2010

performance, video, mustard paste, mustard powder

Keen as Mustard is a performative action created in response to the negative connotations of enthusiasm. The work involves writing the text on a blank wall with liquid mustard and creating an imprint of the text with mustard powder on the floor. Keenness is also exhibited in a video where the artist attempts to remove the text from the wall following a 9-month period, without complete success.
