Please join us at the Plan on Friday, March 24th at 8pm for a special screening program, “We Don’t See Our Shadows”, curated by Peixuan Ouyang.
“We Don’t See Our Shadows” presents a series of time-based works, featuring Gauri Awasthi, Aashna Singh, Lin Chen, Che Yeh, Leonardo Pirondi, Vesper Guo, Ruby Que, Eugene Tang, Zhuang Leng and Qingqian Liu, with a workshop presented by Xuan Liu and Youkun Zhou from the “Fake Green Cards Project”.
Parallel to “Winter Survival” curated by Yue Xu, “We Don’t See Our Shadows” echoes the sentiments and reveries of the diasporic experience, showcasing a wide range of moving image experimentations by international artists and filmmakers in the process of obtaining and securing a place to be in the United States, a country that follows a groundhog’s prediction for the arrival of the spring. This program demonstrates what films and videos can take in and break from, with a variety of projects that are personal, self-reflexive, playful and imaginative. With lights and shadows that we create, we make our own announcement:
“Faithful followers, there is no shadow of us and a beautiful spring it shall be.”
