Arts on a plane

You’re an artist sitting in your window seat on a plane off to a residency, an art fair, a biennial or something like that. Suddenly you have this great idea. Grabbing your blowup pillow you excuse yourself, climb over the two passengers between you and the aisle and head for the toilets down the back of the plane. There you cram yourself in and grab at the towels and toilet paper using them to transform yourself into old master paintings. Well that’s what American artist Nina Katchadourian did anyway. You can see more of her work here.
Did we mention that she did all this flying back and forth to Dunedin where she was doing a residency at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery? Should have. (thanks A)
