Young Chul Lee, Superstring (particular)


During the preparatory period, I conducted an audience-participation project with the citizens of Albisola and Savona including the mayor, kids, artists, teachers, curators and ceramicists. I gave out clay to hundreds of participants I encountered everywhere — in the street, cafés, the mayor’s office, schools and shops — and invited them to stamp their palms on a lump of clay and their names while making a wish. This grass roots dialogue and identification of the corporeality of one’s self provided the Biennale with sense of solidarity as well as pleasure.
