Actuation (performance/installation) of hanging (and giving away) one’s coloured clothing ... and shaving one’s head, with the intention of, from now on, wearing only black, until death.
One wears black as a ‘sign’ of loss, throughout the Troubles (from this date in 1981, ongoingly, until future death). Also, if one mixes together equal amounts of the three primary colours, one produces a ‘greyish black’. Wearing black, ‘insightfully’, one may go as ‘art in life, life in art’.
