2-channel Full HD video, 0:23:30, /colour, sound/, two-sided wooden projection screen
An experimental documentary portrait follows Eda, a laborer in a tire factory and a passionate martial artist and Chinese culture enthusiast. This amateur author of the so-called wuxia genre – short fantasy lyrics, including stories about kung-fu masters – is being asked to write a story about Chinese feminist and revolutionary Qiu Jin. The characteristics of the protagonist are plotted through his writing and confrontation with the historical figure.
The two-channel projection, designed for installation at the Jelení Gallery in Prague, was synchronized and linked by a shared sound. Double-sided canvas was intended for circumvention, with each side offering a different image composition.
