The artist asked six men to hold a heavy gun as long as they could. Soon the playful game turned into a competition and everyone wanted to win. The guns point straight into the camera, as the minutes go by their faces grimace and their bodies contort. In the installation, two screens are set facing each other and the game becomes a duel.
