Cinderella's Slipper (2004, slipper, performance)

At the turn of the Millennium, many poor Chinese men streamed into the big cities trying their fortune. But most ended up in the service industries where they remained all but invisible to affluent society.
In this performance, numerous courier men are dispatched to the homes of art connoisseurs, secretly leaving behind a slipper with the inscription "Once upon a time there was a courier man"... and maybe, like in a Cinderella story, someone might recognize them.
