Mutual weight
Pieke Pleijers
“Life begins and ends with being carried.”

In this durational performance, performed at Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam as part of the Rietveld Uncut, thirty people took turns carrying each other in pairs. Pieke Pleijers’ work focuses on how individuals form a collective that is able to accommodate others, as a radical act of inclusion that connects bodies and provides shelter.
