Title of Work
Invitation for the exhibition “Seven Intellectuals in Bamboo Forest” by Chinese artist Yang Fudong, held at Paço das Artes and curated by Maarten Bertheux. The exhibition displays a series of black-and-white films inspired by an ancient Chinese tale, in which seven intellectuals reflect upon the contemporary Chinese society. The installation display used five screens to direct the audience to have a non-linear and interactive engagement with the films. The identity of the exhibition fragments the printed matter into seven parts, offering the audience the possibility to interfere with the pieces, reinforcing their ties to the conceptual proposal of the artwork.
