Nummer Twee (2003), begins with a stunt by the artist as he appears to be knocked down in the middle of a street by a car. What happens next is a cinemtographic dreamland with ballerinas that enter the shot, performing around the artist. The surreal combination of images creates a piece that intersects between film, video, and performance art.
