Best Wishes (2014)

An ephemeral installation and gallery intervention developed for SafARI 2014, Sydney’s experimental arts biennale.

   

Having relocated to Berlin by the SafARI festival period, Dillon created a live performance and ephemeral installation, ‘Best Wishes,’ responding to her physical absence from the exhibition. She sent individually addressed flower bouquets to festival artists and curators, apologising for her absence and describing the highlights of her Berlin lifestyle. Dillon hired an actor to perform a toast on her behalf at the opening night event of the festival. The bouquets were left to decompose in the gallery during the festival period, pointing to the fleeting nature of live performance whilst providing a monument to the artistic ego.
