Room with a view

Performance May 2002,
Silpakorn University,
Bangkok Duration: 15 jours

In a space divided in 2, one for the audience, and one for the performance. A big canvas is stretched between the floor and the ceiling. I stand on one side of the canvas and ask people from the audience to get into the decor installed: they will eat, drink, watch TV converse with each other, etc… Duration of their participation: one half-hour.

In the meantime I sketch on the canvas the shape of the space formed between the silhouettes of each different participant. I start by marking guidelines, then later, after the performance I begin to embroider the spaces between the participants. The action of embroidering took 15 days.
