Public Hanging: installation, happening

The participants put on business suits and are suspended by the collar on meat hooks. Once off the ground, their mobility is limited to the course of the processing line. “Freed from the ground, the business suits become a kind of harness or straitjacket, in which the wearer is carried by the suit itself. The public hanging becomes a sensory diagram of the everyday logistics and mechanics of power by displacing the active viewer through a physical conceit.” Adam Kleinman
