    About The Work

    Fashionably Late for the Relationship is a three-day long public performance by Lián Amaris Sifuentes. As a woman prepares for a night on the town, three days pass by in the city around her.

    In this live performance, Sifuentes's slow, nuanced actions become a counterpoint to and critique of the unnaturally rapid and unyielding pace of the public environment, which she redefines as the private, feminine ritual space of a boudoir. The performance took place for three entire consecutive days (July 7-9, 2007) in Union Square, New York. Throughout the whole performance collaborator R. Luke DuBois documented the piece with video in three channels. Using a visual averaging computational process, DuBois representation of the entire 72 hour outdoor performance was algorithmically time-compressed before it was edited into a 63 minute video work.

    This artwork was made in collaboration with WIKA, Toshiaki Ozawa and Todd Reynolds.
