Chen Xiaoyun, Drag, Video, Color, Sound, 4’11”, 2006

Half naked young man is dragging vehemently. The mysterious power is inside the door: harvest in darkness and extreme tiredness of heart and body is endless. You can’t let all this go.The invisible power that you are attempting to oppose or compete is in the other end of the rope but which controls you. You don’t know what you are going to lose or gain. There is no result about the darkness. You probably know nothing. Regarding to life, you have to stay here.

I scatter the nailed horseshoes along routes people must encounter in the space in order to discuss a concealed emotional boundary. Stepping on the tipping point of the nails triggers a sudden ache, by which I would like to refer to those strong yet vague pain gained from the interpersonal relationships.
Pain could be conceived as one of the challenges for people to undertake in the reality, and we all have different reactions towards it. No matter it is the immediate turning away from the extreme painfulness, or it is the gradual process that a horseshoes-like thick cuticle grows out and covers the physical body after a long distance walk, both are examples of an inner decision.
