‘papier’ is performed during ‘Precious Treasure‘, a performance art event organized by Jolijn de Wolf & Liesje van den Berk happening at outLINE, Amsterdam, 2013.  The event included performances by Ronald Bal, Jolanda Janssen, Sabine Oosterlynck, Liesje van den Berk & Jolijn de Wolf and an installation by Günther Schaefer.

 
500 sheets of copy paper in a stack on the floor.
Just above it a bare light bulb.
I walk around the stack repeatedly.
One by one I toss each sheet in the air.
For each time I utter the word ‘papier’.
The volume of my voice gradually increases.
