ATLAS, 2020 

 

CHAINS, ROPES, ELECTRONIC CABLES, FISHING WIRES, HOOKS, INK, WOOD STUDS, DRYWALL

DIMENSION VARIABLE 

120 L x 96 H x 4 W (INCHES)

305 L x  244 H x10 W (CM)

A DURATIONAL PERFORMANCE AND A SITE-SPECIFIC  INSTALLATION.

 

I FIRST BUILD A WALL STRUCTURE. THEN I WRITE DOWN EVERY SINGLE NAME THAT'S ON MY MIND/IMAGINATION AND USE CHAINS, CABLES, ROPES, AND WIRES TO CONNECT ONE NAME TO ANOTHER, TRACING OUT HOW I KNEW OF EACH PERSON LIKE A MAP. 

THE PIECE IS FINISHED WHEN MY BODY COMPLETELY COLLAPSE, USUALLY AFTER 6-7 HOURS. THE WALL BECOMES A SITE-SPECIFIC INSTALLATION.
