The Lament: Mountain Ghost

The Lament: Mountain Ghost.

Solo exhibition The Lament: Mountain Ghost showcases Chinese artist Cheng Ran's latest video work which juxtaposes the two worlds of ancient Chinese poetry by Qu Yuan and contemporary Chinese society.

A slow, ritual-like dance is performed by a heavily tattoed man, and is accompanied by melodious and soulful tunes from the guitar.

Cheng explores his interest in light sculptures, as well as in ancient totems, symbols and patterns in this video work.
