Cheeeeese

2014 July, Performance Single-Channel Video






Cheeeeese is a single-channel video performance. It is a close-up of a female performer’s mouth.  The performer smiles for a long time showing discomfort and convulsions. The uncomfortable pains get severe toward the end of the video. Cheeeeese conveys society’s pressure of being polite and being nice to others; however, the manner is socially forced, not naturally performed.
