by Hrag Vartanian on November 17, 2010

Panda's need internet connections too.

Starting today, artist Nate Hill will be performing his newest piece, “Punch Me Panda” (2010) at #TheSocialGraph.

If you are in Brooklyn, you can text (347-742-2293) or tweet Hill (@natexhill) to come to your home, where you can punch him for one penny.

This is the first-time the artist has performed in the context of a gallery show and a rare opportunity to see “Punch Me Panda” in his natural habitat. As Hill says in his statement for the performance:

Do you ever get so mad that you want to punch something? I’m here for you. My name is Punch Me Panda. Kidnapped from my family in China, I got mailed to the Bronx Zoo. Luckily, my crate got lost in the mail, and I ended up here in Brooklyn.

Serving individuals and couples, one-time basis or continuous.
Serving all Brooklyn only.

When: Wednesday, November 17th to Saturday, November 20th. I’m sleeping in my shipping crate in a compassionate office space in Bushwick to stay cozy.
Where: Your home or the Outpost office (1665 Norman Street in Bushwick/Ridgewood — Foursquare — Google map)
How: For an appointment text 347-742-2293 or tweet @natexhill
