Works done at Shangyuan residency:  Staring At Things Staring Back (single channel video, 10’30’’, 2016) A commodity, an object, travels around the building of Shangyuan museum like a tourist, savouring the views the architecture, art and the landscape. The object, a pink bowl and a fountain act like the commodity which stares back at us as we stare at it; just like in Walter Benjamin’s example of a person we are looking at on the train, who suddenly looks back at us. Our surprise at the sudden discovery that there is another subject. The commodity and the artwork are both magical objects which suddenly acquire their own subjectivity or maybe they are just the distributed fragments of ourselves.  Work in Progress: Pond-Life , Stairway to Heaven  Previous work:  The Landscape Painting (single channel video, 15"00, 2016) The waterfall is a standard trope of oriental landscape paintings, with manifold meanings. This waterfall in Seoul has been constructed like a painting, an “image” which does not “represent” but “is” a waterfall. This waterfall “represents” all the images of the waterfall as the movement of the whole cosmos: water and mountain, yin and yang, for the benefit and happiness of the people. However, although we can switch a waterfall on or off, we cannot control the movements of the cosmos.  aerlab.wordpress.com
