Untitled 12: Chinese Girls (2008), in collaboration with Xiamen University.

One circle, 12 girls, 24 shoes, 12 needles and 12 yarn bobbins.

During the performance the girls arrived form different directions, but all as if they were "just" part of the audience. They also looked like that. When they came together they formed a circle and all started to sew their right shoe to the left shoe of the girl standing on the right from her.
