Cleaning Windows on Fishers Island: an artist fellow request

Performance at Haukijärvi Forest, Finland. Winter 2017. Image by Pan

Hi, my name is Pan, and I’m a Lighthouse Works fellow visiting from Philadelphia via China. I am interested in language, (mis)communication and the poetics of everydayness.

I want to video record people on Fishers Island cleaning their windows by following my How to Clean A Window audio tutorial. I can go to your house, workplace or other locations. This playful and meditative exercise takes about 15 minutes.

Please let me know if you are interested in participating.

You can reach me via email: or text: 971-269-8601.

I’m excited to meet you and your window.

Yixuan Pan is an artist who was born and raised in the land of fish and rice, Hunan, China. To deal with issues of translation and communication as well as reimagining the western hegemony through a global outlook, her anti-disciplinary practice merges multiple media and modes of presentation such as installation, video, performance, lollipop, music therapy, choral conducting, and more. By dislocating language from its context and form, Pan questions the linguistic structures people learn and unlearn in relation to comfort, temperature, transparency, hierarchy and power dynamics. Pan is a recipient of the University Fellowship at Temple University, the Laurie Wagman Prize in Glass at Tyler School of Art, the Award of Excellence and the Art Achievement Award at George Fox University. Pan’s work have been exhibited internationally, including: Vox Populi, Philadelphia, PA; Haukijärvi Forest, Finland; Temple Contemporary Gallery, Philadelphia, PA; The Pine Barren Gallery, Whitesbog Village, NJ; Hämeenkyrö, Finland; Asakusa KAMINARI, Tokyo, Japan; ARC Gallery, Chicago, IL; Yin Yang Acupuncture, Portland, OR; Bush Barn Art Center, Salem, OR; CSUFT, Changsha, China. Pan holds a MFA in Glass from Tyler School of Art, Temple University; a BA from George Fox University in Oregon and a BA from Central South University of Forestry and Technology in China.
