About Tehching Hsieh
Born in Taiwan in 1950, Tehching Hsieh began work on his iconic series of One Year Performances starting in the late 1970s. Using long durations, making art and life simultaneous, Hsieh spent one year locked in a cage, one year punching a time clock every hour, one year completely outdoors, and one year tied to another person. For his final performance piece, Thirteen Year Plan , Hsieh intentionally retreated from the art world between 1986–99, setting a tone of sustained invisibility. Since 2000, having been released from the restriction of not showing his work during the 13-year period, Hsieh has exhibited and lectured in North and South America, Asia, and Europe, including major exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. In 2010 Hsieh was included in the Liverpool Biennial in the United Kingdom and the Gwangju Biennial in South Korea.
