Sanctuary John, 2011


A 2-hour performance installed at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, where the artist hid within one of the museum’s parking lots with a pair of binoculars and a walkie-talkie. Audience members located on a viewing platform in a nearby building were also provided single a pair of binoculars and a walkie-talkie to share amongst themselves. While partially concealed among the objects in the landscape, the artist communicated with audience members in the adjacent building via walkie-talkie and binoculars as to his whereabouts as he crawled around in the parking lot.
