In Between the Distance, 2013
Video and sound, 1h 0m, Dimensions Variable
From February to May 2012, I was invited by Braunschweig University of Art (HBK) to do a residency in Braunschweig. It was my very first time traveling in Europe and the stay brought lots of inspirations to me spiritually and culturally. But something that is pretty hard to express are the emotion, isolation, solitude, nostalgia and romance associated with places I had been, which are unexplainable or even understandable. It probably is one of the key moments in my life that I really want to express and tell something anyhow…
In this audio and visual installation, I tries to investigate the personal nostalgia during my stay. Linking up with his solitude and his continuous missing about certain places and moments where I have been, going into deep thoughts of how to express the romance and nostalgia and how he counteract with my personal situation during his stay.
