In a group exhibition, the artist announced a proposal 30 mins before the opening: she would place a tall plinth in the centre of the exhibition space, and tie herself up to a chair on top of it. Audiences were invited to interact with the artist in any way they wished. However, the genuine intention, which she didn’t reveal, was to test out how other artists would react and diplomatically deal with such ‘impolite’ intrusion.
As a result, the work kept being moved from the centre, to the side, to a corner, then next to the bar, and eventually got canceled altogether. The artist then came back the next day and performed in an empty space outside the exhibition venue with no audience.
