Projectinfo

Interactive reactions on the space of the MQ / quartier21 complex and its social surroundings in form of photography and video; installation in public space after realisation.
The idea of the project “CITY SCAN” is to research and to find parallels between the two cities Beijing and Vienna.
In preparation for my residency in Vienna I will analyze places around 2nd Ring Road in Beijing. On several excursions I will visit the area around places like Lama Temple, Drum and Bell Tower and Tiananmen and take pictures of its surrounding and people.
During my stay in Austria, I will observe buildings and places around Ringstrasse in Vienna and mark them on a map, in relation with the places I found in Beijing.
The result of the project “CITY SCAN” will be a movie, showing me moving around Ringstrasse, stopping at the related places and bringing them in connection with the places in Beijing. In an overlap of these two cities parallels and contrasts should be pointed out through the buildings and the people.
The media will be Photography and video (with sound) and as point of reference to Beijing: printed images.
The lens is the view of myself, a 1980 born Chinese female artist living in Beijing.
