Video performance

Single channel video/sound NTSC DV
Year of production: 2008
Duration: 00:05:40

When I was 10, my father thought me how to clean his weapon. This was our little ritual after he comes from a front line. Than he would leave for a battle again… Once he even took me to the front line with him to see my uncle. A lot of children of my generation cleaned their parents’ weapons, uniforms, boots after they come home from the front line.
In this video performance I am using the same very old sniper riffle that was used in 1992 war in Bosnia and was in the possession of my family.
