Here, too, the audience has no way of avoiding the work. In this case, it is even surrounded and infiltrated by a group of extras. Grinberg himself, wearing a mask, is walking around among the visitors, now and then handing out a toy tortoise, which prompts the extras to further action. The audience has lost control over its route across the room, a recurring element in Grinberg’s performances. Like a choreographer, he directs the movements of his audience, whose only escape from his direction is to leave.
