Live Performance

This performance was part of a group exhibition called “Die Gelbe Gefahr” (Yellow Peril).

After researching the topic of Yellow Peril, Yingmei decided to make a performance related to traditional Chinese medicine because it is an essential part of Chinese culture. She wanted to contrast the fear and prejudice of the “Yellow Peril” with this respected practice.

Yingmei Duan appeared in her performance as a healer and immersed the audience by letting them experience the Chinese medicine practice. One healing method she performed was with a moxibustion stick. She burned the cigar shaped stick around particular points on the body to heal the qi (energy) of the “patient”.
