Delight

performance at Majlis Multidisciplinary Arts, Toronto, August 13, 2011

This was a relational work in which the audience ate grilled peaches, stamped their hands, wrote, had a shoulder massage, listened to bird songs, enjoyed the garden and one another’s company.

Recorded by the artist and the audience on a laptop at Delight:
