A Kind of Machine Called “Liberation"
My Imagination of Great Nation
Safely Maneuvering across Lin He Road
2017, performance, 2 hours
Commissioned by Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture, Shenzhen
The street is packed with shops of daily necessities, grocery and snacks and pedestrians flood in. Unlike the road center line that plays a regulatory role, this "chain" becomes a center that interferes with people's daily activities. The process of the action leads the "chain" from the city gate on one end to the county government building on the other end, disclosing that, regardless of the evolution of times, the government building always occupies the central location. Even though it is merely a small renovated tourist site nowadays, it has not been changed with the urban development.
