Through the use of video, sculpture, sound and architectural intervention, Li explores the bio-politics of sex and the body. The AI sex doll and the ancient concubine converse in the next room, a cold and unsettling exchange, while mesmerising 3D animations of tadpoles circle the space.
There are times when it feels as though the more human aspects of the exhibition act as an interruption to the technological tone, as opposed to the other way around. Ernela Vukaj: This is your first solo exhibition in Europe. Through this series of works, I try to carve a sensual landscape where, I hope, discussions and thoughts can go further and the regional difference in response is actually quite nuanced. EV: You said that the technological landscapes do not feel cold to you.
How would you describe your relationship with the digital world? EV: Your artwork in the exhibition gives a voice to ancient concubines, whose stories have been told for generations, but never from their own perspective. Why was it important for you to tell these stories in ? How did you form the script between the AI sex doll and the ancient concubine?
LS: It started with a very personal perspective, I was just curious how they were living their lives. So I started going through historical archives. It turns out they were either written by foreign missionaries, local tabloids, or male literati.
In the beginning, I was just trying to write a short story, but then it got out of control. I read in the archives that there used to be brothels that were operating on boats along the rivers going around Shanghai. They would go from place to place to pick up men. This is the setting of my protagonist. Back in school, I was researching technology and its interaction with humans. Looking back, the two voices of the story come together quite naturally.
