“City Under the Water”


During the residency at PCCA, as a new challenging approach of my making, I made some works by subjective impressions coming from the historical stories and landscapes of the ancient town of Jinxi. Jinxi is such a unique town where old historical views are composed by a lot of narrow canals and bridges built during the Ming and Qing dynasties, and specific views of Wubao Lake. While walking around Jinxi and learning historical stories, the most impressive element for me is the Consort Chen’s tomb island (Chen Mu) located in front of PCCA. The Emperor Xiaozong buried his consort on this small island located in front of the Jinxi landscapes she had loved during life. Basically, we cannot cross to this island, so Chen Mu seems to keep in silence contrary to the bustle of the opposite shore.
