Public Art Project
Flowers, 2000, Performance, Helsingborg Museum, Sweden

I heard about a big news story before I prepared my performance: A young man jumped off the tower--his suicide shocked me. The next day I had to give a performance project in the same place. He was only twenty-six years old, but he chose to die. He gave up his desire to live in this world. Later I saw his wife, who looked so sad, planting a lot of flowers into the ground where her husband jumped off.

I can not bear this scene,I want to resuscitate his life--for him, for myself.

Life has so much stress, that’s why people choose to die. I can understand them
