Pepper, 2016

Single-channel video 0’27, peroformance

Pepper spray derived from essence of pepper is the most common form of restrain used by the police for crowd control.  When grounded pepper, a key component of pepper spray is sprinkled from the window of Ip’s apartment, it blows with the wind onto the sidewalk. In such occasions, pepper in the air failed to raise any eyebrow from the pedestrians.  When confronted by the oppressors, people can’t help but feel the right and privilege they are born with being striped away.
