When was the last time you hurt someone?

And when was the last time you talked about it with a stranger?

The idea of "Spring cleaning" came to me suddenly. It was April, spring coming so soon and the time to prepare for the sunbathing season, as every woman's magazine was telling me to. Why not a public waxing session?

For someone such experience was a first.

Just before the wax strip came off, I asked my audience about the last time they had hurt someone.

The Spring cleaning was a performance during a performance evening called - Springification / Pavasarizacija, created by the performance art course students. Many individual performances or one combined - we still don't really know.

Read more about the evening here, a diary of the performance evening by Linda Bolsakova:
