Institutional Critique Boutique / Failure without Fluro / Lüpertz in China

00:19:12 2006

This video was filmed in Shanghai as part of Satellite: a project with the Shanghai Biennale curated by Lisa Li, Richard Thomas, and Karen Hung in 2006.

The video is of a performance I did in a compound in the suburbs of Shanghai. I created a tomb/homage pavilion dedicated to the myth of the 80s Cologne art scene and the painter Markus Lüpertz. A transgressive homage/worship, a critiquing myth-object-pagoda thing.

DVD available.
