Thinking through structures of care, Support System (for Park, Tina, and Bob) is a durational piece addressing the performance of convalescence, disabled sociality, collaborative art practice, and the transactional nature of emotional labor. Support System (for Park, Tina, and Bob) is performed over the course of a day, from 9 am to 9 pm. Visitors are invited to sign up for a 30 minutes slot for a one-on-one performance with the artist who spends the day in bed. The cost of admission is one bouquet of flowers.
