Performance, photograph, video

Curated by Freya Chou

“I am encompassed in my home, in a stranger's home, at the gym, indoors and outdoors, and in public. I am surrounded by air, by myself, from inside and outside. I am encircled by the whole earth, by the universe. They all keep me at an inadequate distance.” 

Responding to Bruce Nauman’s video performance Dance or Exercise on the Perimeter of a Square, the artist works with the exercises, passage of time and the restriction of body movement while wearing a rubber outfit and performing repetitive gymnastic.
