A Game of Unclear Direction
Songjiang Creative Studio, Shanghai
A Game of Unclear Direction is a large stage raised at more than a meter above the floor, composed of four main settings: a stuffed peacock, a zen-style rock, a fountain made of a vase and foams; a carpet featuring a symbol; a boat with chairs sunken in the wooden floor; a snowy slope with half of a body at its bottom. All these objects extracted from reality are combined together into a decor that possesses an unusual, awe-inspiring beauty.
It isn’t merely a scene but also an ‘observing’ and ‘being observed’ experience. It constitutes a mysterious playground where time and space repeat themselves in a cycle as does the water of the fountain or as symbolized on the carpet. Viewers are invited to create their own dreams and stories: in this background designed by the artist, they are the improvised actors of an unclear play.
