Justified Detachment, 2007

Lace is interested in how spaces relate to the preportions of the human body and how beauty and immersive bodily experiences are often used to influence thought and belief. Occasionally she immerses her own body into an installation.

In front of an audience and for the period of 1 hour the blindfolded artist bit and broke fishing line suspending a fish bowl with water and fish, after some time the weight snapped the remaining lines and the fish fell to the floor, at which point an audience member spontaneously intervened and rescued the fish using her wine glass. The Fish lived a few more hours before it died.
