Nezaket Ekici Human Cactus, 2012 Video Performance, 4.04 minutes, Edition: 4/5 + 2 A.P The artist shapes a cactus mimeticaly. The dress, occupied with 4000 toothpicks, deceptively appears as a defensive desert plant in the video performance. There must be something human-like at a cactus, otherwise the artist would not be able to pretend being a cactus. If the cactus would be able to, it would probably look for water, like the artist does, because it is the striving for water that made the cactus what it is.
