"My Taste. My Style. My Beer"
Pekka Ruuska a guest curator for the Summerlab collaborated with John Lui in staging a site-specific "happening" in front of a domestic beer advertisement. A gesture of institutional critique, the curators invited passersby as well as Summerlab artists to participate in an art opening where the opening was the work itself. Furthermore, the performance aimed to question the role of advertising and the disconnect between projection and reality.
