Site-specific Event:Funeral Parlour in Suzhou

《Elegy》 is an instant event with symbolic significance. The artist picks up a discarded flower and “mourns” it in a funeral home after a funeral. Flowers as life and not as props, in the moment it was plucked, life is sentenced to end, it is entitled to a send-off ceremony. A person’s funeral will be attended by his or her cronies, and a flower funeral will be attended by other flowers.


挽歌

2017

定点事件:苏州相城区殡仪馆

《挽歌》是一件具有象征意义的即时事件。艺术家在一场葬礼后的殡仪馆内,捡起一枚弃花,为它“办丧”。花作为生命而不作为道具,在其被摘下的那个瞬间,生命即被宣判告终,它有资格拥有一场送别仪式。一个人的葬礼将有其亲信的参与,同样,一枝花的葬礼中也将会有其他的花的观摩。
