Shen Mingquan

In the Shen’s two videos work, she presents the behavior of a ranger who develops into obsessive behavior as they repeatedly photograph trees repeatedly. Through this behavior we witness the process of the ranger and a human ape exploring each other. In these two stories, the authors attempt to make visible movements hidden in linear time and real space, capturing what remains of the daily fracture, revealing, small and always unbridgeable gaps in time. At that point where nothing is seen, where there is no meaning, the image returns to our gaze, where one encounters one’s own object-relative. Do clues and information become lost in this flow?
