In this performance, Marcus moves on a Vaseline covered surface. He slides from side to side while holding a flower wreath with an elegant ribbon. The work shifts between the eternal beauty of youth to the time that ravages human body and physical look. The continuous movement from side to side changes slightly with each ribbon, combining aesthetic beauty with a sense of morbid gloom that hovers over the entire action. The slow back-and-forth action while carrying the ribbon and flower wreath creates a dual sense of a wake and a coronation.
