Nancy Hwang:
N Performances

Interactive Performance
September 6, 2001, 11am

N (2001) by Nancy Hwang is an interactive performance that consists of the artist working as a manicurist, offering her services in the space of the gallery. By setting up a manicure station and posing as a stereotypical working-class Korean immigrant woman, Hwang manipulates the position of the viewer­participant vis-a-vis commodity, desire and service industry. The manicures are "performed" in the gallery Thursday through Saturday 11 - 6 and by appointment.
