The performance took place during a residency at Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto in Biella, Italy. Bystanders got scared, since they did not know that it was an art performance, so they called the emergency services. Therefore the performance ended after 45 minutes. This led to a more detailed research in the bystander as spectator.
