Performance art is an incredibly interesting art form, as presented by this featured Terence Koh Nothingtoodoo piece. Often baffling to the mind, this particular penance-like performance piece involves the silent artist and an 8 feet high and 24 feet wide cone-shaped pile of rocky solar salt that he circles eight hours a day for five days a week.

The Terence Koh Nothingtoodoo performance piece is not only painful to watch (in a strangely captivating way), but it must also be extremely painful to do. In fact, Koh had to introduce knee pads during the second week of the performance.

Quietly unsettling, the Terence Koh Nothingtoodoo performance piece is almost like a rite, stripped down to its bare essentials. It is taking place at the Mary Boone Gallery.
