Published on the occasion of the exhibition 'Patty Chang: The Wandering Lake, 2009-2017', held at the Queens Museum.

The Queens Museum website describes The Wandering Lake (2009-2017) as a project that redefines the role of artist, image, object and performance in the construction of narratives through an exhibition that integrates video projection, photography, sculpture, publication, and performance as one expansive body of work. It allows viewers to navigate through Chang’s personal, associative, and narrative meditation on mourning, care-giving, geopolitics, and landscape. It is in part inspired by turn-of-the-century colonial explorer Sven Hedin’s book The Wandering Lake (1938)—which tells the story of a migrating body of water in the Chinese desert—the project also chronicles the loss of Chang’s father as well as her pregnancy and the birth of her son.

This artist book is intended to conceptually mirror the installation in the galleries and is comprised of a photo essay by Chang detailing her travels to the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region of Western China, the site of the wandering lake, and other aquatic locations, along with selected excerpts from literary as well as other sources in relevant topics written by authors including Jill Casid, Herman Melville and Alice Walker.

行為藝術

本頁的精選書目展示了藝術家、策展人和研究員實驗行為藝術的各種方式。對於某些人而言,行為藝術是一種違抗藝術商品化的方式;對主流敘事的實體干涉,或是逃避國家操控的演繹,而演出則成為在劇場、街頭、咖啡店或私人場地表達的抗議。對於另一些人而言,行為藝術是形式的實驗,是舞蹈、戲劇和電影的轉化、挪用或擴增。
