Befitting the theme of the Singapore Biennale 2016, An Atlas of Mirrors, this project presented in Suzhou echoes the thematic exhibition of the Singapore biennale like a mirror image. In Suzhou, the subject of the artworks is ‘I’. It investigates the relationship between human beings and the world, and human exploration and discovery of the world on three levels: ‘No Me, Hence No World,’ ‘Me, Hence World,’ and ‘Non-Me, Hence Non-World.’ Combining installation, music, performance and moving image, the artworks make music with daily objects that correspond to the five elements in Chinese tradition: metal, wood, water, fire, and earth.
