Us, 2010 • Ma Qiusha


format: Live performence
venue: Taikang Space B2, Cuigezhuang, Caochangdi Hongyihao


Us consisted of 100 people being assembled in the space wearing white cotton clothes that were all stitched together. The performance saw each person tear away from the group to escape to another room. Spectators could either watch them going past through a glass door, or see the whole process playing out on screens outside.

Milk Body (Series: Milk Body), 2008

Ma Qiusha’s work focuses on the deconstruction and examination of the body—on expressing psychological pain in the realm of the physical. The 'Milk Body' series shows close-ups of feet with spilled milk as a blood analog.
