If you were at Ilham Gallery one Saturday afternoon last month, you would have seen a strange sight: a man climbing up and down a bamboo ladder, with something - mesh? metal? - in his mouth. You would have also seen him sitting in a chair and trying in vain to untangle a bunch of cocoon threads, while a bright light shines on him.
These are Muffled Puddle and Tangly Ground, two performance pieces by Melbourne-based Vietnamese artist Hoang Minh Duc for Domestic Bliss, an exhibition at Ilham Gallery in Kuala Lumpur.
