She Just Painted a Chair

Excerpt from Inward Gazes: Documentaries of Chinese Performance Art 2012, The Macao Museum of Art, Macau S.A.R., 2012, p. 84: 'Apart from my father's autocracy, there has always been an aura of despair about my individual and family life. My social experiences when I became a young adult augmented my dislike of power and violence. This power and violence may be sex, personal, family, and it may also be the state, the ethnic, religious.

The black, huge chair and I were fated to meet.'

The performance took place in Beijing, China.
