30 Days, Zhou Bin Project: The Nail, 三十天 — 周斌計劃:釘子
Excerpt from Inward Gazes: Documentaries of Chinese Performance Art 2012, The Macao Museum of Art, Macau S.A.R., 2012, p. 38: 'While carrying out the 30 artworks in 30 days project, I regulated my life as much as possible. Simplification was important, as I concentrated on my own simple and trivial feelings, valued the immediate feelings that I could not anticipate, and then through my work I presented my thoughts. 30 works of art that I could not foresee are perhaps as exquisite as poetry, perhaps a cruel extreme, perhaps somewhat creative, or maybe they will make people wonder about what is not art on the most basic level. However, I don’t think this is what is important; what is important is to value one’s own intuition to make decisions; to enter into a creative state with dense and unknowable results and make it through the entire thirty days.'
The performance took place from 22 June to 21 July 2010 in Beijing, China.
