Onion Joy | 1999| public performance

onion joy

Onion Joy was a performance that took place in the Fall of 1999 in Saskatoon.


I collected my body weight in yellow cooking onions, through invitation for donations, and arranged the onions around a chopping block in the gallery. I aimed to chop onions uninterrupted for one hour each day for five days.

The performance permitted me the chance to cry in public.
