Documentation of Performance
‘Hóngbāo’ is documentation of a performance in 2013, during which visitors were gifted with a red envelope containing a unique drawing from a recent newspaper image. In Chinese (and other Asian societies) a red envelope, or ‘Hóngbāo’, is a monetary gift which is given during holidays or special occasions. Red envelopes are mainly presented at social and family gatherings. The red colour of the envelope symbolizes good luck and is supposed to ward off evil spirits.
This piece was performed as part of the ‘Parallax’ exhibition in 2013.
