  • This piece uses an old piece of furniture in bad shape. Destroy it further, if you like. Bandage it up with gauze and adhesive. Spray red paint on the wounded joints. Effective lighting helps. This activity may be performed with one or more performers, and simultaneously with other events.

The performance and video are presented in conjunction with Fluxus and the Essential Questions of Life at the Grey Art Gallery, September 9 – December 3, 2011. The Wounded Chair is on view in the exhibition.
