Happening is a site-specific installation work of rolls of cinema film. All the pictures in the frames, however, are cut out.
I grew up in film studios during the Chinese Cultural Revolution because my mother was a documentary film director. She often took me to work and left me in studios. I moved from studio to studio, watching how documentary films were edited and manipulated.
Since my childhood, I have always wondered if there is an absolute truth. Later in life, I developed a tendency to reinvent events through art, which become real in my mind.
