Sliding Mirror

"4A presents Sliding Mirror: 24 Hour Embrace by New Zealand-based Korean artist Young Sun Han. Staged in 4A's street front gallery, the performance involves the artist finding strangers matching his physical description through online listing services. At the stroke of midnight, the artist and stranger(s) will embrace for 24 hours. Previously staged in Chicago, this will be Young Sun Han's first presentation of work in Australia.

The embrace, silently endured, will take on the presence of a transient moving sculpture. Using solely the body as a medium, the performance raises questions about intimacy, identity, our longing to connect with others and critically explores an art practice ambivalent to object making."
