A very tall plywood chair is fixed in front of the museum entrance. The artist is seated on it, naked and exposed.
There is an attendant in front of the podium, with a tray full of very soft persimmons offering them to the visitors.
The visitors are invited to pick up a fruit and throw it at the artist.
By the end of the performance the artist and the podium will all be covered in the orange pulp from the more or less successful attempts of the visitors to hit the artist.
