Re-identification (2014)

Project Statement

In this public performance, artist confined himself in a pedestal, leaving his head out. He invited the viewers to have a role in shaping his identity, symbolically, by shaving his hair and facial hairs freely without any instruction.

Re-identification is about the struggle of capturing the invisible identity, or the subjective intimacy between the self and other, which is mixed with loss, fear, vulnerability, trauma, and affection.
