The performance is training with a punching bag decorated with a slogan “You’re only the runner-up”. It’s a work based on the well-known tennis players saying “you won’t defeat the wall.” The struggle between Man and Object, which reminds him of the inevitable defeat.
According to the artist, one of the strongest incentives for young people is not the desire for success, but the fear of failure. This fear affects representatives of all groups and professions. The most interesting area of activity for Norbert Delman is the border, in which obsession connects with ambition and rivalry merges with fear. In his works the artist usually refers to popular sporting activities and uses team game systems.
