Have A Seat on the Sidewalk (Walking with Chairs)
For this participatory performance on the sidewalk of 14th Street, twelve white plastic chairs will be put together like a small community, inviting people to sit down. Throughout each day the artist will move the chairs up and down 14th Street. At first the chairs are put down quite orderly, but eventually the installation becomes increasingly loose. Passersby can have a seat, watch the street, and talk to one another. When they go, they must find a new place for the chair they have been sitting on––thus causing the chairs to walk up and down 14th Street.
