RHYTHM 10, 1973
PERFORMANCE,
60 MIN.
MUSEO D’ARTE CONTEMPORANEA
VILLA BORGHESE, ROME

I turn on the first tape recorder.

I take the first knife and stab in
between the fingers of my left hand
as fast as possible.

Every time I cut myself I change the knife

When I’ve used all of the knives (all of
the rhythms) I rewind the tape recorder.

I listen to the recording of the first
part of the performance.

I concentrate.

I repeat the first part of the performance.

I take the knives in the same order, follow
the same order, follow the same rhythm,
and cut myself in the same places.

In this performance the mistakes of time
past and time present are synchronized

I rewind the second tape recorder and
listen to the double rhythm of the knives.

I leave.
