From july to august 2012 i lived with sheep in europe.

For a month, the artist disappeared from his regular routine and lived in the European countryside among sheep, documenting the work only through a single, unverifiable photograph. This of course becomes a performance in itself, demonstrating how boundaries between work and leisure are increasingly blurred within a 24/7, always-on, always- connected, high performance culture. The artist retreat as performance thus functions both as a rupture in the seamless flow of artistic productivity and as a kind of myth within the artist’s body of work—a dematerialized form of production that persists over time.
