Life as Performance Art: Tehching Hsieh at Carriageworks

The 63-year-old Taiwanese-American artist Tehching Hsieh is best known for his series of yearlong endurance performances that took place during the late 1970s to mid-1980s. One of these works, One Year Performance – Time Clock Piece (1980–81), is the subject of an exhibition currently taking place at Sydney’s Carriageworks. There, ArtAsiaPacific had a conversation with the artist, who discussed the concept behind his monumental performances."
