Double Rule


A collaborative performance piece with a friend and artist from Hong Kong, Liu Rong Rong. It was inspired by the antagonistic relationship between humans and nature, particularly with water. In our performance, we systematically retrieve water (sourced from a local lake, climb our industrial ladders, and pour it back in with increasing violence. When the water is left alone, it is placid and clear. As we interfere with the water, it splashes over the edge of the pool, the mud in the bottom of the pool starts rising and discoloring the water, and the quiet water is churning. The action continues for several minutes and was performed twice: once in the lake, once in a gallery setting.
