Mu Xue: Mirror Tower - Artist's Video Essay Screening
IFP is very pleased to invite you to partake in the screening of Mu Xue's latest video work Mirror Tower, which is presented in The One Minutes.
Through an almost synesthetic approach, Mu visualizes the paradoxical co-existences between insignificance and value, to dispute the physical understanding of reality and its moral conventions while facing the intensified ideological confusion and identity struggle at present time of globalization. Critical social events inspire Mu as a catalyst rather than a subject - they accelerate the revelation of the intertwined relationships between the stories surface (the image) and its concealed cause (the dynamical truth). Through art making she wants to revive a mind space exploring the, infact, none-hierarchic and ever circulating being of things as a complex unity.
