Artnet’s Emily Nathan talks to Performa 11 Commission artist Simon Fujiwara about his commission, The Boy Who Cried Wolf.

It’s been months since I saw it up close, but I keep jogging back to Simon Fujiwara’s Frozen, winner of the Cartier Award at last year’s Frieze. I’ve always wanted to take part in an archaeological dig. Still do.

As a child I dug around our backyard and was thrilled to find bones, which I mistook hilariously for a prehistoric equus fossil. Turns out they belonged to a deceased pet dog!
