Light the Lantern

Light the Lantern is created to reflect on a Chinese film “Raise the Red Lantern” with my developed visual narrative.

The installation retells the story from the film that woman who were oppressed and objectified in the feudal society. It vividly shows the life situation of women in the patriarchal society, which criticized the feudal order and patriarchal power. The space represents a Chinese architecture Siheyuan (a quadrangle courtyard with 4 walls). Audience move closer poking a hole to watch the video echos that when people wanted to stalk anyone in the ancient China, they needed to poke a hole with their fingers. The inside and outside build up two spaces that watching Warlord era from 21 C perspective.
