WATCH YOUR STEP

2016



WATCH YOUR STEP deconstructs narratives of fault and blame through positioning the viewers as naiveté. The performance began when the viewers met the flat platform, which was unknowingly unable to bear weight, in the middle of a large room. The text, “WATCH YOUR STEP”, acted both as an invitation and a warning, allowing the viewer to contemplate the consequences of their actions only after performing. The performance assigned specific blame to the viewers whose shoeprints were clearly visible. WATCH YOUR STEP invoked guilt and shame while making viewers question why crucial information of the object’s fragility was withheld.
