Installation, mirror, stone, printed silk scarf
In 1966, the epic musical The East is Red portrayed the most representative events that took place after the formation of the Chinese Communist Party. The style of story-telling in this musical has deeply aﬀected the people of that generation. I have captured a few symbolic ﬁlm stills from a documentary about it, both including images appearing on stage in the musical and those of the audience groups below the stage and woven them into the patterns of two silk scarves. In the gallery space, I arranged these two silk scarves, a reef stone, and a mirror into what seems like a scene from the Nature.
