Nonny de la Pena draws from the Asian Art Archive collection to create a new iteration of “Safely Maneuvering Across Lin He Road” (1995) by Beijing artist Lin Yilin.

In the initial performance, Lin built a wall of bricks in the middle of a busy roadway in Guangzhou. As the artist moved across, he gradually brought the wall along, forcing cars to detour around him. For “Passage”, de la Pena does not simply re-enact Lin’s performance but creates an experiential encounter that pushes boundaries: between artist as maker, audience as receiver, and art as conceptual or visceral. In Passage: life of wall, visitors spend around 10 minutes having a go at building a slow moving wall across a busy road in China as buses, trucks, cars and motorbikes swerve around them.

As the user gives life to a wall in the middle of a busy street in China, an experiential encounter blossoms between artist, audience, and art.
