Opening Night Audience 2 (2005), performance (2h)
Milan, Italy


In Opening Night Audience 2 (or ONA 2), two men were hired during the opening to stand at the entrance of the gallery and take the names and measurements (height, width, depth) of each visitor as they walked into the gallery. This information was then written on a name tag that each visitor was obliged to wear whilst in the gallery.

The following day, all 300 name tags were placed on the gallery wall, where they became a part of the exhibition almost like anthropological artefacts.

ONA is part of the Opening Night Audience (ONA) series of performances.
