Isaac Chong, ‘Falling Exercise’, 2016, Blindspot Gallery

The video documents the artist’s group performance, Falling Exercise, at Meinblau in Berlin (November, 2016). The performers begin by falling on the ground all at the same time, piling onto each other. Then, the performer lying below other bodies vacates one by one, while others remain without altering their positions or postures. By dragging out the process of falling and standing up, Chong demonstrates the strenuousness and powerlessness of individual bodies against collective change.
