‘Study for Muybridge Plate #97: Woman Walking’ (1966) by Elaine Sturtevant.
A change in military thinking is taking place these very days, in which the military understands that future wars will take place in cities. If in the past symmetrical warfare was conducted by state militaries in the open fields, today militaries are fighting enclaves of resistance that withdraw ever deeper into the density of the urban fabric. ‘Walking through walls’ is the military tactic of tearing down holes in the façades of people’s homes (and the walls between rooms) in order to expand the battle field from the public to the private space.

Trying to establish a potential new superstition, Bérard wore a coin in his left shoe for one year. Untitled (Convoyeur) is the material witness to this performance.
