Year: 2004. Media: Performance with foldable bed.
Carry Away is a performance that was carried out in New York City. The artists walked around the city, opening up a suitcase-sized foldable bed in parks and other public areas. Even though we didn’t mention the word "homeless," inevitably this bed elicited conversations with and about those living on the streets.
This work is the result of two years of working with and interviewing persons without permanent housing. It seeks to open a dialogue about the use of public space.
