Pei San Ng-danger-right Pei San Ng-danger-zoom

I love the work of Chicago-based Pei-San Ng, who created this three-dimensional piece with matches. The lettering is based on her own cursive handwriting and it is based around the ideas of combustibility. She says: “I want to tempt the viewer to destroy my artwork. When you look at these pieces you realize that – if you light the matches then you change the work, it becomes a performance, and the artwork is potentially destroyed, there is a tension there, you get a moment of satisfaction and then you have nothing – I like that tease”
