Portrayal / Installation + Durational Performance / Dimensions variable

Three Point Turn
UNSW Art& Design, Sydney, Australia
24/11 – 12/12/2015


Within the fragments of time
And traces of the physical world

Lies the constant search for the real Me.

A Me – separated from my thoughts
A Me – in conversation with my thoughts
A Me – in between

All Portrayal is quite useless.

This work captures the durational and meditative process of how one becomes aware of one’s own existence. The moment in which the line is drawn is as fragile as our perception of it.

The performance is for 5 days, approximately 30 hours, in which the artist was tracing the lines found on the crumpled papers that she picked on the floor.

Special Thanks to Franz Anthony and Lii Nguyen for helping me to make this documentation.
