The Hotel

Paul Wong

2011, 17:10 minutes, colour, English


For the Grand Opening of The Waldorf Hotel on Halloween 2010, Paul Wong created The Hotel, inviting participants to wander the hallways and enter ‘guest rooms’, blurring the boundaries of public and private space. Expect nothing/will happen, and it did.

The Hotel featured 12 site-specific performances and art installations created by Wong, which wowed the thousands who attended. This 17-minute video is both document of and art which captures the manic beauty and chaos of Wong’s mise en scène event.
