City Action Series
“City Action Series” is Ye Yu-Jun’s behaviors of creating different arts which can to respond to the environments in public spaces in various cities in Taiwan since returning to Taiwan in 2009. The main forms are the striking flash mob behaviors on the streets or in public spaces and performance art guided by videos to make responses to spaces. It is hoped that every performance art can become some common memories of the city, “P Like performance, Happening everywhere” , responding to Allan Kaprow’s “vague boundary between art and life”. In 2011, this project was extended to the “Artistic Action & Record Exchange Movement ” with the viewpoint of “We provide performances, and you provide records, together complete the exhibition,” with extended thinking of the mutually-beneficial relationship between performers and recorders. Through the exchange project, people can participate (in performing or recording) and enter the palace of art, getting involved in the exhibition. And the concept of “art has no limits and everyone is an artist” can be carried out.
