Flour DumplingsSchool of Velocity (Performance "Ricochet")Children's Tapes

Fox’s video performances are shaped by the immediacy of actions and the experimental exploration of materials. In Flour Dumplings, Fox prepares dumplings with ketchup in front of a running TV, before he pours himself a glass of wine, reading random headlines from the newspaper. The absurd setting, with media consumption in mind, suggests socially critical interpretations when the artist, undisturbed by further headlines, occasionally toasts himself in the mirror.
