THE MONKEY KING | 9'49'' | 2017
With the crash between traditional culture and the development of technology, many of the core values that have so long defined and held us together have been lost as a result of distractions by modern society.
However, using fresh and new techniques as well as a different approach to demonstrating traditional Chinese culture, and taking elements and inspiration from Chinese opera, Monkey King begins with fragments and then assembles them into a new whole character. One which tries to transform and reinterpret the best things from our culture, shows it from contemporary angles, even though it can hardly be reserved as a whole.
