Crouching Bitch

Deitch Projects and Paper Magazine

New York


During Fashion Week 2001, the Crouching Bitch performance pitched downtown fashion designers against one another in a wrestling match to decide who was the best designer.


The artist formerly known as Wen-Chi Chung-Hilyard of Ricefin wrestled Jennifer Wen Ma of Dodorama. Both women wore white dresses that transformed in the process of wrestling. As Chung-Hilyard tore against Ma's dress, bird feathers flew out, and as Ma punched Chung-Hilyard, paint sacks hidden in the outfit burst and painted both dresses.
