From an early age, we were taught to say “please”, “thank you” and “ sorry”. We used these honorific every day to make the relationship between each other seems closer, forming an emotional bond in society. During this greeting process, or so to say “exchanging”, false politeness has been formed, left with only formal appreciation.
There are several wares included in the performance: installation extent from the body, Belt, elastic rope, and iron block. I wear the belt and my head then strapped the elastic rope between the belt and the iron block. Thus my head stays in the same height as I normally bow. Every time I tried to stand straight up, the weight of the iron will force me to bow again, I then speak simultaneously a “Thanks”.
The constant waste of my energy during the performance is a reflection of the “hidden orders” and rules built by society. Such an invisible binding force compresses the rapidly flowing social relations into a short-lived body through repeated repeated single movements.
