🦵 Following the body experiment project at Luxelakes A4 Art Museum in Chengdu (2018), Chen Qiulin and the contemporary dancer Zheng Yuanyuan collaborated again, moving the experiment from Chengdu to Chongqing. Working with Chongqing local dance students, the project “Following You Like A Shadow” (2019) fully taps into the physical potential of the students - allowing them to spontaneously experience the 💨movement of individual body parts and think about contemporary art through the lens of dance.
🩰 The discussion unfolds in a group dance with a sharp, piercing, and story-like sound effect. Through the simple action of "exchanging objects", the relationship between people in the video is changing - from strange and awkward, to entangled and merged - culminating into a collective process climax. "Following You Like A Shadow" is also a powerful question raised by artist Chen about identity mapping, physical distance, and the interdependence of people in our contemporary society.
