“Lying Flat” (2021) is a location-specific work. Each installation is unique and constructed one piece at a time.
Sometimes it is good to lay down, and instead of expelling heat, allow oneself to soak it in.
The title Lying Flat comes from a movement in China today, Tang Ping (躺平). Many workers are exhausted by the “996” culture–9AM to 9PM 6 days a week–and other intense pressures of privatized competition, and are deciding to opt out of it and do nothing. Lying on the ground became the symbol for an active form of protest.
