Shen Xin, Provocation of the Nightingale, 2017, four-channel video installation, 23’, 10’34”, 20’39”, 20’39”
Shen Xin’s major work Provocation of the Nightingale in 2017 explores the artist’s acute observation of collective memory and personal relationships through a multi-screen video installation. At its heart, the work is a narrative focused on systems of belief and power, with a kaleidoscope-like effect of shifting perspectives taken from filmed documentary portraits, recorded performances and interviews.

Shen Xin Solo Project "Commerce des Esprits", Art Basel Hong Kong, MadeIn Gallery Booth View
Commerce des Esprits is a four channel video installation presenting a scripted monologue through animation and text. Based on the research of works by French sinologists on Zhuangzi (370 BC-287 BC), Shen Xin translates the perspectives and productivities of comparative philosophy into an event which narrates an unconscious state. Two animation channels traces human bodies through motion capture, while the two text channels reveal in English and French the commerce of language, and its potential for new ways of producing meaning. The work is supported by New Century Art Foundation, Beijing.
