BEAUTY: Performance Art--Ko Siu Lan

Chinese artist Ko Siu Lan engineered four different performance pieces that reflect the same theme: the ephemeral nature of certain materials. In each case, she hired delivery bicycles, a rickshaw, and a camel to ride around a selected city in either India or Indonesia, carrying rose petals, ice, cotton candy, or raw cotton. As the carts drove, wind or heat dispersed or melted the materials. Each piece was over when there was nothing left to deliver...

Below are still photos from All That Is Rose Melts Into The Air; All That Is Cotton Melts Into The Air; All That Is Sweet Melts Into The Air; All That Is Ice Melts Into The Air.
