The Mud Bath for Thick Skin, The Fokus Łódź Biennale 2010 (September 11– October 10) in Łódź, Poland. 6 hours.
More than fifty artists around the world were invited to create works along Piotrkowska Street, the main commercial street considered to be the longest boulevard in Europe. One of the main venues along the street was an abandoned concert hall, with a main stage area and many rooms where artists created site- specific installations. In that building, Miru discovered a basement, and staged a performance piece for the opening day of the Biennale. The mud in the performance was taken from one of smaller local farms, which are now becoming obsolete due to large industrial farms. The title of the performance is inspired by the Poet character in A Dream Play by August Strindberg.
