Li Ming, Prove that I am Elapsing with the Light, Video, Color, Sound, 7’21”, 2017

A performer(artist) makes the dead skin and dust float in the air through scratching, itching, shaking and peeling of the skin, and makes them visible in the air through special light .

I want to try to build such a “stage”, where all the individual performers have multiple aspects, including the visible and the invisible, the real and the hypothetical. These bodies are at the same time physical proofs of the real world and symbols that connect all kinds of desires. They are signs of a certain period of history but also void of any specific historical meaning.
Do they exist between imagination and ambiguity? They maintain a relative synchronization within different orders; they are introspective presences in public space; they share the same space but ignore each other. This is a stage filled with normality and abnormality. It is my experiment with video, and my understanding of the world that I live in.
