50-year-old performance artist Danny Devos aka DDV performs 'Yves Klein was Never in Art Ghraib' and 'A Chance Meeting of Yves Klein and Gordon Matta-Clark on the Gold Plated Corpse of James Lee Byars' at Momentum #4 Festival in Bains Connective, Berthelotstraat 34, Brussel, Brabant, Belgium.

I filled golden paper bags alternately with earth from my hole and ‘Yves Klein’ blue paint, and tied them to a piece of canvas. Then I hoisted the canvas up so the bags formed a figure. I hoisted myself up upside down and pulled at a rope until I was hanging at a distance away from the canvas, let go and swirled like a projectile against the canvas which made the bags tear and the earth and the paint were mixed and spattered around.
