Li Lang – 1974

by La Maison de Z


Each has a unique starting point in their own memory. For Li Lang, it all began in 1974. This work, “1974“, consists of 390 slides played in a loop, accompanied by the artist’s voice-over, 4 stories from his memory of 1974, and a summary of the important events of that year.

Li Lang’s work reconstructs his imagination from his memory, through a voice-over and old photos. The images and texts are no longer just traces of the past. They also explore the potential dialogue with reality, in the space between light and shadow. Li never asks the audience to accept his account of history. Instead, he invites us to join him as an explorer of the past.
