Sarah Lewison – BREATHE. An Adaptation of Gordon Matta-Clark und Juan Downey's Fresh Air Cart (1972), 2008

Unfortunately copyright and well known conflicts of interest confounded the possibility to show this pioneerpeace in the exhibition.
But we found:
"Breathe", Adaption of Fresh Air Cart, Performance, 2008, Shanghai. Sarah Lewison with Jay Brown for the exhibition Intrude 366 organised by Zendai Museum Shanghai.
EXAMPLES TO FOLLOW!

"Breathe" was an intervention into the everyday life of Qipu Market in Shanghai that enabled passersby to breathe pure medical oxygen while reclining on the padded seat of an retrofitted cargo tricycle. This mobile oxygen unit was an adaptation of "Fresh Air Cart," a 1972 installation performed on the streets of Lower Manhattan by sculptor Gordon Matta-Clark and video artist Juan Downey. In iterating this earlier project, “Breathe” inquires into the changing context between 1972 in New York City and 2008 in Shanghai.

Sarah Lewison, born in 1956 in the USA, lives and works in Illinois, USA.






Dear partners, supporters, friends and lovers,

due to the COVID-19 Virus our little ETF! office in Berlin remains closed and we are working from home.

As many fellow artists, creatives and freelancers this Corona crisis has hit us hard.
We had hoped to send out a newsletter this spring informing you all about our 19th venue in Lisbon, which was supposed to open in Carpintarias São Lázaro on the 19th of June 2020.
Now, with all the cancellations and the shut down of cultural life we hope to postpone and for EXAMPLES TO FOLLOW! to still be part of the program of Lisboa Green Capital 2020.
