GOLD DUST

POUDRE D'OR

PERFORMANCE: site-specific performance for Rodney Graham exhibition at the Wing Sang, Rennie Collection, October 2014

Within a pre-booked guided tour, accompanied by 15 young artists and friends who serve as human shield for my intervention. While the tour is going on, I carry a little black velvet pouch which has a perforated hole in the middle-bottom. My satchel was filled with gold glitters escaping ever so gently from the hole, letting out a magical gold dust landing on the floor surface of the museum, creating a fourth dimension. A site-specific piece inspired by Rodney Probably Gay's oeuvre, mixing neo-romantic objects with a hint of glam within a punk gesture, dedicated to the museum owner, real estate magnate and art collector Bob Reenie.
