The Flying Buck (2016), Art Central Hong Kong, Roundtable X 4A


HyperAllergic Media Inc.:

Taking place over three days of the Art Central Art Fair, the performance focused on the distribution, engagement, and consumption of the global art market. For “The Flying Buck” — which in Urdu translates as talking excessively, or gibberish — Syed spent more than an hour folding fresh, uncirculated $1 banknotes into paper airplanes, unfolding them, then eating and regurgitating them, producing a “Money Art Object.”
