Sweep the Puddle


Above the Clouds / “在云上”国际现场艺术节

Kunming, China


20 minutes


 When it rains, we can see that rainwater accumulated and puddle formed on the ground. The ground we see on sunny day seems to be flat, but we can not see it like flat due to the occurrence of puddles.
Where rainwater accumulates, has a spatiality that is flatten by our saturated recognition in daily life so far. In this performance, I swept the rainwater of puddle formed in rut of the road by brush. My action was not only to dig up the original spatiality of the ground, but also to try taking an ideal flatness of the space apart to pieces.
