Tomato Peel


Romanovski and Tsuchimoto sat down face to face. They spread tomatoes and nails on the table and squeezed tomatoes one by one. Their eyes were locked on each other and the whole performance developed through this continuous eye contact. At the same time, they had rolled one tomato together with their feet. The action was going on sometimes aggressive, sometimes quietly. At the end of the performance, they held up the crushed tomatoes and carried them to outside of the gallery.
