I love my pajamasperformance, Shanghai, CH, 2004; two-channel video installation, 2005
performers: Edit Nagy (H), Salla Willmann (FIN), Anita Sarosi (H)
In 2004, I spent 3 months in China as an artist resident. During my stay in Shanghai, I noticed that Chinese people were wearing their pajamas and walking in the street, shopping, and eating. My artist friends and I decided to go to the center of Shanghai, just like the locals, in our pajamas and to make a typical tourist memorial photo on the Bund. I have to say; the pajamas are very comfortable to wear anywhere. :)
Ironically, from 2007, the Chinese government was forbidding wearing pajamas at the street, because of the Olympics Games in 2008, so it was not allowed to present this video piece at my solo exhibition at the Chinese Culture House, Budapest.
