As you like it
This performance installation depicts the relations between the human and its surrounding objects and forces. The performer is locked in a wooden box with one visible side. The audiences are under her gaze in silence when gradually smoke fills up the box making her disappeared. As you like it is an attempt to create an aesthetic of the human body under the power of the non-human, examining the resistance and restrictions of the two.
