SHANGHAI STORIES

Move on
gallery Futura, 2008 Prague

still from video

 

2008

The project originated from a month’s residency in Shanghai where I focused on getting acquainted with some of Chinese habits. Which could also be good to take in the Czech Republic.
For the exhibition in Futura gallery I selected pages 22-23 and 38-39 from an imaginary video diary based on this experience.
The installation consists of enlarged two-pages which seem to be ripped out of a book. They are contextually completed with a video-projection which is projected on the paper with the texts where it substitutes the pictures to illustrate the stories which the visitor reader is reading imagining.
