The artist invites four friends of different skin colors to play a card game named “Heart Attack” with an specially designed set of poker cards: Wan-Ting Hsu (Taiwan), representing yellow; Chris Scott (Canada), representing white; Asheena Clarke (UK), representing black; Ameth Ivan Guevara (Panama), representing brown. While the card colors reflect the skin colors, each player is randomly assigned to one of the card colors in each round. Play proceeds with the players taking it in turns to bring a card to the center of the table while counting from 1 to 13. If the card placed is identical with the number that is uttered, the players need to place their hands on the top of the pile; however, the player who is assigned to the color of this card cannot place his/her hand on the pile. The artist attempts to explore, through a playful game, mixture and acculturation among cultures and ethnic groups. Searching among contradictions, clashes, or places where memories belong, we return to the true color of the self.
