collaborative performance with Voila Lee
"12th NIPAF 2005"; Hidamari House; Aichi, Japan. 2005
Hong Kong artist, Voila Lee, holds onto one end of an elastic rope, while a tape cassette recorder plays in my hands. As Voila slowly backs away from me, I translate what I hear from the tape recorder (a phone conversation between Voila and her girlfriend) from the original Cantonese into English.
When Voila gets as far as she can from me, she couches down into a fetal position. When the right moment arrives, I release the object. It shoots across field and smashes into the wall behind Voila, narrowly missing her head.
