About Selling my Soul:

“Selling my soul” is my proposal for the invited project “No Soul for Sale” by Para-Site at Tate Modern Turbine Hall in May 2010. I simply think when doing the “art”, you should do it with your soul, where the image on erasers in this project is the metaphor.
The soul somehow is consuming by ourselves when we are trying to do something, where the action in this performance is the case. This also is the general situation we have in our real life but at the same time for this project, I do question how independent is the independent art space always claimed.
Therefore, my project title is just to turn the theme of festival in another around, but finally, somehow it does representing the real situation behind the story, which move my thinking in the positive side of “Selling my soul” or “No Soul for Sale” is just a joke.
