For i-D’s The New Issue, we had tea with artist, actress, and model India Menuez in her Chinatown apartment/studio/dream factory. Founder of the Luck You art collective, India heads up a crew of the brightest spots of the city’s art scene. We asked the New York native to weigh in on her top five favourite performance art pieces, from Yoko Ono laying the seeds for Edward Scissorhands to whippin’ that hair back and forth. Says India: “Choosing five favourite performance art pieces was almost as hard as choosing five people to evacuate Earth with if there was an Apocalypse. OK, I'm being dramatic. Just know there is so much more amazing work out there to explore and be made!”
"In Chris Burden's Commercials, there is this triumph-of-art-over-the-Goliath-that-is-media feeling that is so exciting and inspiring. This kind of anarchy in action - using the mouth of an oppressive force to sing a ridiculous and uplifting song - is just a brilliant way to expose an unexpected audience to something actually new.
