I was somewhere in the Theater Distract / Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood when I snapped this photo of a Pink Neon Sign outside of a Japanese Restaurant. Because, Pink Thing.

Our friends from Petersen Parts have mentioned an avid customer of theirs, Chinese artist Siu Lan Ko makes objects, public works, performances, videos and installations. Words and slogans as readymades are at the center of her art process. Living in both China and Canada, she enjoys wordplay and actions which reflect the misunderstandings and contradictions that result from different coexisting cultures, languages and social systems, stemming from her China East versus China West cultural experiences. Her performances, installations, objects and Public Works utilized the possibilities created by the impossibility of translation, and embrace the poetic limitations of speech.
