Homework for Seminar was a site-specific work first displayed and performed at the critique seminar for my university subject Studio Practice on 14 May 2019. The audience of this work was my classmates and lecturers who participated in this seminar.
I used charcoal to draw on one canvas per day from 4 May to 14 May 2019. The first panel that I produced was on 4 May 2019, 11 days before the seminar. On that day, I decided to give up the initial idea that I intended to present for the class. However, I feared that I would fail the subject if I don’t submit anything for the presentation. As a result, I decided to produce this work and hand it in when the seminar started. On 14 May 2019, when the lecturers indicated that the class began, I walked into the classroom and placed the printed label next to the stack of canvas to indicate the completion of this work. I think this work best represented and recorded the anxiety I felt when I was a student.
