Video: Participation as Performance: Incomplete Instructions

 

What does it feel like to be an object in the museum? Are we all performing a bit most of the time? The piece was, in part, an homage to Helio Oiticia’s Parangoles. Each participant received free admission to the museum if they were willing to get involved.

 

Thirty bright orange garments designed by Various Projects were available to be worn while at the Walker. There are an almost unlimited number of ways the garment can be worn. Each participant became an original walking sculpture. The garments were almost always checked out with museum visitors waiting to get a turn.
