Video Perfromance: Let’s Blow This Piece of Paper

录像:让我们吹起这纸

时长:11分钟
2012年8月

我给每个人一张普通的A4白纸,盖在他们的脸上,让他们吹起来,不断地吹,并用录像记录下来。我想看到在一张普通的纸上如何找到游戏的乐趣,在不断吹纸的过程中他们的性格特征和身体语言如何流露出来。同时,在这种反复的行动中,吹开盖在脸上的纸,也成为一种象征,正如西西弗斯(Sisyphus)永无止尽推巨石从山底下到山顶一样。只是这个行为并非基于惩罚,而是基于游戏与渴望。这件录像作品的部分场景是在菜市场里拍摄的。

Video: Let’s blow this piece of paper

Length: 11′
2012, August

I give every person a typical sheet of A4 white paper. They put it on their face, and I ask them to blow the paper into the air, without stopping, while I videotape the event. I want to see how people can derive playful enjoyment from a normal piece of paper, and how their personality traits and body language are displayed as they blow on a piece of paper. At the same time, the repeated action of placing a piece of paper on one’s face and blowing it into the air becomes a symbol, like Sisyphus endlessly pushing a giant boulder from the bottom to the top of a hill. Only this action is not based in punishment, but rather games and longing.
