葉子啟 草地上的下午茶 現場行為 台灣 台南 2010
Yeh, Tzu-chi Afternoon Tea on the Grass performance Tainan, Taiwan 2010
There is a small courtyard inside the gallery. It’s quite small but with some plants upon the lawn. It attracted me in this city full of cement buildings. It reminded me “Lunch on the Grass,” the famous painting by Manet. Why not inviting audience to make something similar to it, say “Afternoon-Tea on the Grass!” Oh, my God! It was so sultry because it was surrounded by four tall walls so we took a dry leaf and fanned ourselves. It was not possible for us to look far so we kept looking at the sky, like frogs under a deep well.
