Description

A special edition of the bookwork accompaniment to Koh’s edition of the same name. Conceptualizing this project specifically for Art Metropole, Terence Koh chose the beavertail for its nationalistic identity. The artist performed a secret “veneration” of the bronze , at Art Metropole, on the evening of Saturday May 3. The performance/ritual, enacted without an audience, was photo-documented. Selected images of the performance make up this bookwork, revealing the details of the secret ritual.

Edition of 262, numbered.
