    Eruption   I Can’t Stand The Rain    1978

    Bona fide banger. File alongside weather appropriate disco. The groove is obscene. Oh god.

Tehching HsiehOne Year Performance (Cage Piece)September 29, 1978 -September 30, 197911′6″ × 9′ × 8’ wooden cage, wash basin, lights, a pail, single bedNo talking, reading, writing or musicNotarized by Robert Projansky

The artist is caged. The artist punches a time clock. The artist takes part in the banalising ritual of murdering time with dead labor. Art is ultimately shown, in the specular state, to be a corollary of alienated labor. And to forget this is at best an unforgivable romanticism and at worst a conscious act of vulgar trickery. softpyramid:

STATEMENT
We, Linda Montano and Teheching Hsieh, plan to do a one year performance. We will stay together for one year and never be alone. We will be in the same room at the same time, when we are inside. We will be tied together at waist with an 8 ft rope. We will never touch each other during the year.
The performance will begin on July 4, 1983 at 6 P.M. and continue until July 4, 1984 at 6 P.M.
Alex and Allyson Grey: How does it feel to have the piece nearing an end? 
Linda Montano: We’re so much easier on each other now that it’s almost over, and there is a nostalgia that we couldn’t have been this way earlier. But I’ve learned a good lesson…to give 100% all the time. Usually in relationships I have thought, “I’ll open up tomorrow,” or “I’ll communicate tomorrow.” Now I realize that life is short, and it’s ridiculous to waste time. 
I also feel a sadness that Tehching and I won’t be doing an 80-year piece together…maybe we’ll do it from a distance. 
Tehching Hsieh: On a philosophical level, I feel that the piece is not nearing an end.  It’s just that we are tied to each other psychologically. When we die it ends. Until then we are all tied up.

Tehching Hsieh #4,
Art / Life: One Year Performance 1983-1984 (Rope Piece)
In this performance, Hsieh and Linda Montano spent one year between 4 July 1983 and 4 July 1984 tied to each other with an 8-foot-long (2.4 m) rope. They had to stay in a same room while not allowed to touch each other until the end of the one year period. Both of them shaved their hair in the beginning of the year, and the performance was notarized initially by Paul Grassfield and later by Pauline Oliveros.

100% admiration for endurance artists Tehching Hsieh and Linda Montano. Study in closeness and claustrophobia.  varonmag:
