The vertical language

 

The performance starts with Gideonsson Londré laying on their backs with planting soil, corresponding to their weight, placed on their chests. A assistant carbonates water with a soda streamer and fills up the mouths of the artists. The liquid starts to expand because of the carbonation, and is slowly pouring out of their mouths. When the mouths are empty, Gideonsson Londré attach themselves to the planting soil and are elevated upside down with their feet towards the ceiling. Once again the assistant carbonates the water and fills the mouths of the artist, and when the liquid has poured out, they lower themselves to the ground.

 

In relation to the work, Gideonsson Londré produced a text during one week, hanging upside down, being carbonated.
