Scary work of art

"The Mending Project" is the new work by artist Beili Liu, who invites everyone to take part in an interactive repair work that causes terror. The viewers are invited one by one to sit at a table and carefully cut a piece of fabric from a large cloth in order to create a huge patchwork fabric, which eventually surrounds the table. However, on the ceiling of the gallery, just above the seat where the volunteer sits, there are hundreds of sharp scissors hanging. 

The scissors are located there in order to affect mentally the visitor; hence the simple task of cutting a fabric becomes a scary execution.
