Let Me Out

Let Me Out, 2021, public performance, Lower Manhattan, NYC
This performance was at the Art in Odd Places Festival 2021: NORMAL, curated by Furusho von Puttkammer.

On May 14th, at the beginning of the AiOP festival, at 4 pm, I parked the truck on the side of 14th Street in Downtown New York City. Entered the cage, locked the cage gate, and threw the key out. Then I covered my head with the cube mirror I had made before and sat still on a chair. The next day, around noon, two white American young men that were running and passing by freed me from the cage.
