About the Work

In Talksof Ten Figures, ten short texts about art run like “bullet subtitles” (comments inserted by viewers across films and TV series) across ten screens. These paragraphs that are like celebrity quotations consist of excerpts, as well as rephrased and rewritten texts put together based on a close study of the discourses and tones regularly found in historical cultural narratives. Similar to 1999, a sound installation presented in the Shanghai Biennale in 2014, this work reveals a collective narrative in history through anonymous commentaries.
