River Lin – ‘Sleeping in between Tehching Hsieh and On Kawara’

River Lin offers a reflection on cycles of waking and sleeping, presence and absence, transience, and labor in his durational performance Sleeping in between Tehching Hsieh and On Kawara. As the title suggests, the piece also gives a sly nod to two artistic forebears “from” Asia, Tehching Hsieh and On Kawara, whose work have also taken the marking of the passage of time as one of their prime tasks.

This act, themed as Performance Beyond The Body is part of Out of Turn, a project curated by Meenakshi Thirukode and Asia Art Archive.
