'Queuing on Stairs', The Crypt Gallery, London, 2019



A Thousand Years, 2019



The Crypt Gallery's dimly cellar, a 2.4-metre high picture of Goddess Iris hanged from the ceiling, the opposite video was the gaze from Ramses II. The original tag from the goddess' pedestal was quietly changed to the artist's questions, about the ebb and flow of history, and how much was left behind. Also, the text 'Ozymandias' from Shelly was placed on the side for viewing and taking away. The name of this work is called 'A Thousand Years.'

在地窖画廊的昏暗房间中,一张2.4米高的彩虹女神的图片从拱顶悬挂下来,对面的影像则是来自拉姆西斯二世的注视。女神像基座上的铭牌被偷偷篡改成艺术家的提问,关于历史的沉浮和残留。而打印的雪莉的诗歌《Ozymandias》放在一旁待人取走。这名为“一千年”的作品来自于对大英博物馆展品的传说故事的调查,作者寄希望由影像的方式把博物馆中的作品偷走,并安放在地窖中,来提问殖民背景下的战利品今天的合理性。
