Performance @ SCM Annual 2013

Sterilization (2013) is a video which

records a durational intervention which

consists of a single precise repetitive

action: picking the seeds out a

strawberry with a needle. The process

separates fertility from the fruit. The work

questions purposeful activity, suggests

latent maliciousness, challenges

people's habitual behavior in the urban

society, and references creativity as

destruction. The artist would like to use

such intriguingly disturbing acts to

destabilize the audience's ingrained

perception of the things around us.
