Mike Parr - Integration 3 (Leg spiral), 1975

Photo by George Goldberg

"Four photographs documenting a performance by Parr in which he lit a fuse that spiralled around his leg, groaning as it burned out. It was part of a series of performances also recorded in the films Rules and Displacement Activities, Part I and II, 1974-76. Parr has worked with his own body since the start of his career in the 1970s. His performances often involve confronting the fear of violence and disability, and testing the limits of physical endurance and the mind’s capacity to control the situation.” [Art Gallery of New South Wales]
