These are some of the pieces that moved me:
(video of performance art)
"Bottari Truck - Migrateurs is a performance where the Korean artist Kimsooja travels through Paris for ten days seated on top of a mountain of bottaris. Bottari is the name the Koreans give to the coloured cloth bundles used to transport both Korean traders' goods and migrants property. Korean women themselves sew these wrappings and bed linen from left-over cloth, and for Kimsooja this practice signifies a kind of absorption in and encapsulation of personal memories as well as family history.
Kimsooja's performance results in an account of the traveller and the way in which the Korean woman takes with her not only her home, but her whole identity, the memory of her origin and the history of her people, as something constantly on the move in the fluid, almost endless space of Korea".
In the video of this piece, the woman moves in slow motion through the streets of Paris. One sees the onlookers, who are not shocked, maybe slightly confused. They seem to accept this woman riding down the rue. For me, the description of this piece has more meaning, then the piece itself. As in a lot of performance art, the artist gains meaning and experience and the audience are simply onlookers.
Yes, we have all washed our hair and most of us have never seen this perspective of that act.

Although each of three videos has very different subject matter, they are centered in one way or another around the idea of home and everyday rituals.
