“In my live art of the past few years, I have been using art as a healing process, like the concept of spiritual catharsis in psychology. The work explores how art can act as a healing agent, and at the same time attempts to discover material transformation of the body from the past to the present. I try to use process based interactive methods to give audiences different kinds of experiences, and to convey how the material and immaterial worlds can coexist within the context of personal and conceptual interaction”. - He Chengyao
BBB Johannes Deimling: "leaking memories # 2"

BBB Johannes Deimling, Germany 1969, conceptualize an image of our society, which shows it full of contradictions, sentimentally, stupidly and badly, but also affectionately, creatively and cooperatively.
"Performance art povera" declared the artist a part of its ephemeral works, which gives a clear and concentrated image, because of the austere and purposeful use of the material. The frequent use of food in the performances points a clear aspect to the everyday life, which refers in Deimling's work often humorously to the caducity of our existence.
