Yingmei Duan | 19th Biennale of Sydney: You Imagine What You Desire

  • March 2014


For the 12 weeks of the Biennale, Chinese-born, German-based performance artist Yingmei Duan will inhabit an indoor forest at the Gallery to perform Happy Yingmei. Duan, who studied under seminal performance artist Marina Abramović in Berlin, will hide at the extremity of this magical space, occasionally creeping forward through the trees to investigate a visitor and perhaps offer them a secret note of instruction or poetic observation. A wonderland discovery for the visitor, the performance for Duan is a durational challenge and a form of self-imposed confinement.
