20-year-old performance artist Danny Devos aka DDV performs 'Untitled' in Ruimte Z, Lovelingstraat 56, Antwerpen, Antwerpen, Belgium.

In a darkened room a slide was projected onto a sheet of transparent plastic. From behind I sprayed white paint on it so the projection became visible: a view of the backroom in which I hung upside down. Unseen by the audience I hung myself in the same way. While violently swinging my body back and forth I could reach the plastic and pull it away while all the lights were switched on.
