Tie (2014)


Performance, 2014

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.




在一次群展的开幕前30 分钟,艺术家临时宣布增加一个行为作品:在展览空间的正中心,把自己用绳子捆绑于椅子上放置在一个高台上,观众可以与艺术家进行任何形式的互动。但其真正的意图在于测试其他参展的艺术家将如何以集体的力量“政治”地处理和处决这个无礼的提案。
