Yussef Hu’s practise comprises objects, sculpture, performance and video. His performance work is characterized by displays of extreme physical endurance that are documented in video or which continue to resonate through remaining sculptural objects. By undertaking masochistic actions such as attempting to drink two hundreds gallons of mass produced condiments over a period of 47 minutes, Hu challenges his audience to overcome various emotional responses including wonder, ridicule and disgust. Hu’s performances suggest the ritualistic and embrace the obsessive and repetitive in order to augment their psychological intensity, representing an investigation into transgression, excessiveness, pleasure and aversion.
