In the New York neighbourhood The Village Jan Fabre asks for a gun in one of the local bars. With this gun the artist shoots at a dollar coin with the portrait of JFK. Upon his return to Belgium this coin is hung up in an art gallery.


'During the day, my first action in NYC.

I shoot John Fitzgerald Kennedy through

the head (a $1 coin).

During the night the first series of drawings

I have created on American soil.

They are blood drawings
