"Exergie - Butter Dance"

"15th International Electronic Art Festival – Video Brasil"
Sao Paulo, Brasil

Wearing a tight black dress and red shoes, Suryodarmo walks into the space, and steps on the pieces of butter. She starts dancing. Melati Suryodarmo is flailing, crashing heavily downwards, and continuously being on the verge of standing, slipping and falling on the butter- greasy dance floor.
