Insomnia 失眠

2018, HD Video, 3:28








Insomnia is a short video work which combines performance with projections on a black curtain to simulate a stage play scene. It is created during Wang Chen's art residency in Singapore. 

Wang Chen uses symbols of three cities in Insomnia: Jinan (her hometown), Melbourne (her residence) and Singapore. Chen emotionally uses the poetic body-movement and metaphorical monochrome imagery representing non-belongingness, fatalistic displacement with the mother country and nostalgia, along with the sense of unreality and anxiety brought by insomnia.
