Little Peter Spiderman III


Little Peter Spiderman III
One hour performance in the exhibition space rum 46 in Aarhus, Denmark, April 1997

Little Peter Spiderman enters the empty gallery and starts to spin a web in middle of the room out of a 500 m thick black elastic-thread carried on his back, without paying any attention to the spectators. When he has finished his web he realizes that he has locked himself up and tries to find a hole to escape. But he is too big and clumsy and the web is too tight. Instead he ends up sticking to the web. Realizing his situation the only thing he can do is to take of his dress, leave his shelter. He is now no longer Peter Spiderman - but Peter Callesen. The only thing left is his dress almost crucified to the web. During the exhibition-period the dress in the web and a video documenting the performance functioned as a installation.
