Sustainable travelling to exhibition with saint of travels

Performing Pictures Robert Brecevic together with the St. Christopher video shrine took the train from Stockholm to Brussels - capital of EU - as a performance and a small token against jet fuel as well as expensive art transports (combining economic interest and enviromental considerations and as such fulfilling the economists' claim about the ever so evasive 'homo economicus').The trip connecting the national and the transnational capital took 26 hours and it involved mixed up sleeping cabin bookings and a suicide outside of Odense. Robert Brecevic and St. Christopher arrived safely at Nadines' artist-in-residence-studio in Brussels, successfully installing the video shrine in the church of Our Lady of Benevolence in central Brussels.

Of course, the train ended up much more expensive than flying to Brussels!
