Video, 2’46”

The video shows the artist in military pants. He is pouring a clear liquid out of an empty plastic bottle onto a TV-monitor, moves a step aside and sets fire to the monitor with a safety match. Offensively he poses right next to the burning TV with folded arms and spread legs – very similar to the videos circling the internet depicting terrorists and their warnings. On TV the BBC channel is presenting the opening credits to the programme “BBC News”. A digital clock and a beep every second count down to zero. Suddenly the tone is interrupted, the speakers are burning away, then the fuses blow and the monitor explodes and burns down. Calmly the artist walks out of the picture.
