Isaac Chong, ‘Help! Help? Help.’, 2016, Blindspot Gallery

The video documents the artist’s group performance, Help! Help? Help, at Meinblau in Berlin (November, 2016). Performers can choose either to lie on the ground and raise their hand for help, or help someone up. Through the cyclical processes of lying down and standing up, and the reciprocal role of helping and being helped, the artist investigates the formation of individual/group consciousness and the dynamics of social norms.
