I Was Waiting for You (My Heart Will Go On)

Eeva-Mari Haikala

In this video performance a woman is waiting something to happen. She is standing on the pier holding her arms open horizontally. While filming the piece, the artist created a performative gesture. Something could have happen – someone could have stepped behind her to help her to keep the posture.
