Tryting to realise these pieces in Shenzhen proved to be quite an intersting week, trying to get to the right places to find materials and the rights people to make certain things - with my lack of sewing machine over there - it was hard to let go and let someone else make parts of it since I am so used to making decisions when I am in the process of making, however having to give clear precise directions to someone helped me to simplify certain elements of the work - at first I thought I was making too many compromises but in the end I was quite pleased with how the work itself turned out. Yet I was a little annoyed at how especially the second work became more of a spectacele than I wanted - partly due to the fact that it was directly in the public space. I had thought that people would wonder past stopping for a little look, yet instead, many people were actually sitting in front of it like an audience for its duration. This always complicates notions of the start and end to a piece of work involving live bodies, especially when nothing actually happens in the work itself - which some people interpret as some kind of anticlimax. Despote all of this, there was an intruiguing tension to the piece, and it achieved a level of absurdity, combinig physical, formal and carnivalesque and very real qualities which I was quite happy with.
