each time i travel to a new city, i take photo of myself lying in front of historical and tourist sites, coved by a silk corpse sheet.


Two beds face each other, one is covered with peanuts, another one is empty, I start to shuck peanuts and leave peanuts’ shell on the empty bed . When audiences come, they are invited to shuck peanuts with me, eat peanuts seeds while leaving peanuts shells on the bed. Peanuts can be taken to home, but shells must be left on the bed. Audiences participate both in my presence and absence.

performed eight hours at Hamilton Artist Inc,. in Hamilton, Canada
