Indulgence is the initial presentation of a new work by bold and sassy Kai Er, working in close collaboration with Bernice Lee and Jereh Leong. Using the architecture of Space 3 at 72-13 as a playground, the piece fits itself into a sequence that has its own internal logic and rhythm, revolving around the assembly and disassembly of images across space and time. Where will the audience stand? Where will their gaze fall? How will we gain or lose their attention? How will time pass, or change, or disappear? The artists ask themselves these questions as they arrange their tableaus, actions, text and songs, across the canvas of the performance. In doing so, they also create the artists’ own committed universe of private, quiet indulgences. Grungy on the outside and tender on the inside, the concealed heart of the performance is slowly revealed to those who care – the fact that love and intimacy are indulgences that money cannot buy, and the truth that life itself is indulgence.
