Also this exhibition will for the first time in Asia present Yang Fudong’s site specific film installation for the SALT ART titled “The Light That I Feel” in the summer of 2014. The film was created during the summer at Sandhornøy together with local actors and dancers. Fudong’s films are mostly black and white, plotless and fragmented, but at the same time hypnotic and epic in expression. “I think about how to tell a narrative by using not people speaking so much, but how the wind tells a narrative, or how trees tell a narrative”, he says.
