- THE NORTH WOOD FACTORY -
The mutual gaze
The Outsiders is a solo exhibition of multi-screen video installations and murals, at Studio 5.08, King Edward VII Building, Newcastle University, 2017 based on my self-narrative of a ‘mutual gaze’ between me (an outsider) and my friend (an insider) and the invisible collectivism cultural barriers in late 20th century China.
Starting from the entrance, the audience was supposed to view the projections from the smallest to the largest, creating a shrinking sensation through the changes of scale. Walking from one section of the installation to another they gradually become aware of the changing relationship between themselves and the scale of the projected figures. However, it was also open to free walking across the projections.
