MFA ‘15 Huisi He

FSU Art MFA ’15 Huisi He is a 2017-2018 Franklin Furnace Fund recipient for her performance piece “I can’t promise you the ride of your life.”

He has this to say about the piece:

Immigration, rejections, frustration, worries, social pressure, U.S. foreign policies, and feminine struggles constitute my life after I moved to the United States in 2007. This body endurance performance illustrates my constant unsettling psychological and physical status.

I am locked in a luggage and carried around by people. I have been trying to escape but I am powerless and helpless. I have no control of my life in this environment of capitalism and Donald Trump’s white supremacy. The performance conveys a sense of hopelessness: the only hope is slowly melting away by numerous rejections and struggles.

This performance will happen in an outdoor public space and an indoor performance venue.
