Open one door to see a naked woman perched on a bicycle seat high on a wall; enter another room and find twins reading identical books under a pair of dot paintings. Fleeting installations involving living people are stealing the show at this year's Art Basel, the world's biggest meeting place for deep-pocketed collectors. The show, where everything is usually for sale – at a hefty price – has for its 45th edition dedicated a section called "14 Rooms" to performances and live art by top international artists. Art enthusiasts from around the world, many having flown in on private jets, flooded into the gallery section when it opened to VIPs Tuesday, browsing booths representing 285 international galleries and sweeping up pricy pieces at an astonishing rate.Not all artists are willing to work with the confines of the show, though.
