Note: “WATCH MY MOUTH! AND BEWARE OF YOUR BORROWED PROPERTY” takes private view event as a production site as the materials of the performance is to be generated live by the audiences. By performing and being performed, four performers eavesdrop on the audiences’ coversation inside the exhibition, steal their word(s) or sentence(s), then announce the materials out loud on a small stage outside/ in front of the building. While one’s announcing outside, other performers are collecting the materials inside the exhibition. The performance runs through the whole duration of the private view.
The redo of “WATCH MY MOUTH! and Beware of Your Borrowed Property” in a different space, different exhibition, different country, with a different procedure. Instead of jotting the words down on note books like the previous one, the collected lines/words were uploaded in real-time on the exhibition’s facebook page. There were also no stage this time; the performers travelled around with the portable amplifier and performed inside the exhibition space.
