“2017” project focuses on imagination about time and space, and corresponding reactions on reality. Artist Ye Su set up a shop selling used TVs in an office space in a building in Wangjing district, and addressed feminist issues, racial issues and reality crisis of the media age in this place. The works include, novel, photography, ready made, video, installation etc.
There is a large number of photographs of black families in the space, and every photo contains a television set.
At the same time, the old television sets in the exhibition broadcast virtual scenery, African football team and the speech of former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. The videos were marked 2017, and the exhibition was held in 2016.
On the glass door of the entrance, there is a huge mosaic image: a serene face of a 15-year-old Middle Eastern girl (Marzia Bazmohamed, who chose to burn herself for breaking the TV set at home, fearing her husband's abuse).
