The Temple Hotel
23 Shatan Beijie, Beijing, CHINA
2014, Light installation on the outer temple wall
In spatial continuity with the site, this light installation seems to have split itself in two. Here it appropriates the outer wall, acting as a continuation of “The new wave”. But the perspective offered is different. A hollow, a shadow, hovers between two elements of light, which move slowly and constantly on the wall, drawn to each other, only to separate again. The space – the wall- is itself ephemeral.
A new topography of vision and light re-imagines the space between these two luminous, shifting walls.
