The Wall

Excerpt from Inward Gazes: Documentaries of Chinese Performance Art 2012, The Macao Museum of Art, Macau S.A.R., 2012, p. 76: 'This work is exhibited in the manner of looping the same video.

With the intensifying progress of urbanisation today, scenes of destruction of construction can be seen in all corners of the world, and so are scenes of construction of destruction. This also extends to people who are living within these constructions and destructions.

I built a wall to fence myself in, and then to remove it, build it again and then remove it again, repeating this motion endlessly. There is no beginning, nor is there an end.'
