Qin in Retrospect
Project “Qin in Retrospect” unfolds itself with two related yet contradictory states, including installations, images, murals and live performance. Two Shaoxing( Zhejiang Province, China ) artists have responded differently to the Qinwang Mountain that named behind by Emperor Qin Shihuang after his tour 2000 years ago: the fate of nobody under constructed history and reality, and the continuous imperial ideology.
In this project, Ye Su continued his“CILING” series, reserching on imperial buildings, the fruits patterns are metaphors for palace wall and imperial power. Dai Chenlian’s live performance and shadow play started with a nobody’s story and the studio left by the protagonist, thus showing the narrative and imagination on his fate. By presenting the prices a normal person is to bear.
