Stillness Between Two Waves of The Sea

Single channel 4k video, color, stereo channel, 36’38’’, 2022

This project stems from the artist's tracing of family history. Through the loss and imagination of land, She attempts to explore how multiple temporalities and spaces encounter and intertwine in a specific land.


In this video, the artist focuses on Shougang's predecessor, a pre-republican steel mill whose history has seen several regime changes and the struggle between people and land. It all started with a chance accident - a red ore was discovered and the mountain range that gave birth to it was rediscovered and given meaning. Today, the mine is no longer exploited, but the village that was born of the mine and the people who came here for that reason were eventually left behind in this place, just like these red ores that have fallen silent over a long period of time.


The artist made several trips to this mining site in Hebei to investigate and film. In this essay film, she blurs the perspective of viewing and narration through 'ambiguous' personal pronouns, wandering between time and space, and memory and fiction through language.
