FIELD MEETING: THINKING PERFORMANCE


Robin Peckham (Hong Kong)

Where Process Ends: Objects and their Performances

LEAP deputy editor Robin Peckham (Hong Kong) spearheaded a discussion with artists Nadim Abbas (Hong Kong) and Korakrit Arunanondchai (New York+Bangkok) to investigate the invisible elements that allow object-art, such as sculpture and installation, to radiate performance, and how artists encoded “live-ness” and performativity into their object-based work. The discussion also touched upon how the relationship between memory and documentation is changing in art media today.
