Beijing Performance Artist Invites Audience to Touch Her Breasts

Beijing Performance Artist Invites Audience to Touch Her Breasts
Apr 21, 2016 By eChinacities.com

A young artist in Beijing named Lin Zhai performed a piece last Tuesday in which she stood on stage for 30 minutes and members of the audience could come up and touch her breasts. Lin is a 23 year old poet and musician. This was her first time in a performance art piece.

Lin said that experience defied her expectations, and halfway through she was already moved and felt like she wanted to cry. Lin said that the audience was very gentle. She expected audience members to pinch her breasts or squeeze them, “but everyone was very gentle, and I hugged them after.”

Lin and her photographer partner have worked together on pieces featuring human photography. He said, “You will fall in love after seeing just one second of her body. I’ve photographed hundreds of women and her chest is the best. Even the women could not help but to want to touch her breasts.”

Were non-chinese males in attendance ?! If so, were they allowed ? If allowed, were they arrested and tossed into jail afterwards? Curious minds want to know...

I'm an admirer of breasts and it matters not the size or shape.

It's up to a male artist now to do something similar by letting females fondle his balls for a few hours.

Since when is having strangers fondle your breasts considered "art"? I'm all for experimental art forms, but I don't get this.

From the picture, ehm...touching... what breast? Rubbing her back probably would give the same feeling....

Unable to understand how this is considered as a 'performance art piece' from a poet and musician! Exactly what is poetic or musical in the act ?

Typical Chinese male complaining about women just because you couldn't cop a feel. Whocares (isn't that your other handle?) she's letting guys feel her up. Oh I know why your mad, the whole Chinese women are virgin goddesses and foreign women are whores, yeah reality bites. And no foreigner around to blame.

"I know why you're mad" (rather than "I know why your mad"). Sorry, I couldn't stop myself. You're (not your) an English teacher after all. And yes, I'm from Poland.

Oh my God, I made a typo while typing on an online forum. Sue me. People from Poland know English better than Americans.

A typo is a mistake made in the typing process, a slip of the finger so to speak. The term excludes errors of ignorance. I never implied Polish people knew English better than Americans, merely that you had difficulties spelling words correctly in your own language (though you managed to get "than" right this time).

I am amazed this wasn't stopped. Chinese are usually very over the top when something sexual is done.

Only if it involves Foreign men, then it should be banned, like the Spartans.
