A work by Fei Dawei at ‘DIAL ‘62761232’. The courier would prepare a rope. When he arrived at a audience's place, he would attach both ends of the rope to something, so that he and the viewer were divided at either side of the rope. Neither of them should cross the boundary. The courier would then give an introduction of the exhibition to the viewer.

《快遞展》中費大為的參展作品。快遞員准備一根繩子,每到一個觀眾處,先找地方把這根繩子兩頭分別拴好,快遞員和觀眾由這根繩子分割,不能越界。快遞員在繩子的一邊介紹展覽。

Context

Dial 62761232 was the name of an express delivery company that worked with a group of Shanghai-based artists to bring the exhibition to the homes of audience members. The delivery company assigned 15 couriers to the task, who were trained at the BizArt Center. Each courier was given a suicase with a number of works by the artists. Each of the 15 suitcases contained the same works, and each participating artist was identified by name. When a courier delivered the exhibition via suitcase, the viewer would have to choose number in order to see the works.
