The performance took place in Haizhu District, Guangzhou, China.


Excerpt from Inward Gazes: Documentaries of Chinese Performance Art 2012, The Macao Museum of Art, Macau S.A.R., 2012, p. 126: 'This performance art has a series of actions, namely behaviour a, b, and c, and is presented in the form of video. I got the inspiration from the portraits and music videos of beautiful women. I then started to wonder: for the actress who turned around with a smile to the camera, did she ever practice before? Is it natural for her to bite her lips a little bit? All these questions motivated me to perform this art work. Can this kind of practice really bring forth an effective charm?'
