Cage Match

sam-hseih-cage-performance

Sam Hseih‘s One Year performance piece, Cage Piece (1978-1979) is currently on display at Moma and it is amazing.  Just imagine…Solitary confinement, locked in a cage for one year (365 days). No communication with anybody, no reading, no writing, no radio, no tv, no nothing. A friend comes over once a day to take a photo of you in the same spot.  This must have been intense and an incredible lesson in self discipline.

And an Artist

“He affixes unique masks, made from a soap-suds-and-newspaper mâche recipe he invented in jail, to lampposts throughout the neighborhood.”

Well, those days of crazy speculation and Londoners throwing their money at anything made with a stencil or wheatpaste are over. Much to the displeasure of Bonham’s, yesterday’s ‘Urban Art’ sale did not do so great.  See the results here.

That is one great looking ‘S’.  Trolling through his website, I also noticed a really sick print as well, which you can see after the jump.
