Tan Lin’s Landscape of Poetry, Text, and Pictures: A Piece from PERFORMA ’09

Posted in Actions by Audrey Tran on November 18, 2009

Tan Lin’s Chalk Playground (LitTwit Chalk) set about a dozen+  artists and writers to chalk their thoughts on the streets of NY last Saturday. Pieces chalked included a Futurist Manifesto, a Chinese Manifesto, and many other impromptu pieces of poetry. The following pictures catch the “poetry line” working away in a parking lot in Chinatown.

Here’s a favorite:

I only caught up with the poetry line downtown, but the entire performance actually traveled across Manhattan.

Flowers in Bushwick

Posted in Actions by Audrey Tran on April 18, 2009
















A few weeks ago, I picked up Virginia Poundstone’s flower flicker multiple  from a show at Art in General.  The piece asks participants to pick a site of exposed dirt and just spread the seeds. I chose this spot around a tree on Himrod Street. Hopefully, I’ll return in a few more weeks to find some new growths.
