Sleeping in between Tehching Hsieh and On Kawara, but at home
Tehching Hsieh and On Kawara sleep and work at the same time. This DIY instruction-performance reenacts River Lin’s work Sleeping in between Tehching Hsieh and On Kawara in a context of “working from home”. Through staging alarm clocks with cycles of waking and sleeping, and transience and labour, audiences are invited to reflect how they spend time or are spent by time.
The video work Sleeping in between Tehching Hsieh and On Kawara, but at home is commissioned and presented by Live Art Development Agency for Once More With Feeling, an online programme of four instruction pieces and performance re-enactments.
