‘Andrew Beyer’, a video-work from ‘Paradise’ by Kutlug Ataman

“I enjoy doing it because people remember me. I am also now in the Guinness Book of Records as the worlds oldest performing clown in the whole world. I have a certificate I show at my performances. It is also in the book, on page twenty-one in this year’s edition. I’ve been retired now from my regular job for about twenty-five years. But still I enjoy doing the parties, and I enjoy having people tell me that they remember me for so long.”
