I’ve been thinking about what difference between a performance at a theater and gallery.
At the theater, it’s easy to make clear sign of “start” and “end”.
For example, red curtain is one of the clear sign to show “start” and “end”.
Also lighting helped audience to find those sign.
It start and end on the stage. At some point, the audience stops to see performance as a performance.
My piece, I mean the performer and garment are still on the stage, but the piece is “end”.
There is a certain rule of the theater.

At the gallery, this rule doesn’t work in my opinion.
At least, there is more freedom about how to start and end.
I need to break my old idea of how to show a performance.
