DRC No. 12 will hold its first exhibition of 2018 on Jan.14th: The Boundary, the latest project from the Independent Documentary Director and Artist Zhao Liang. During the exhibition, Zhao Liang will present the process and activity of his ‘recording’ in a different space (apartment).
“Bountary” ethymologically means frontier or border. Here it not only means the fixed physical demarcation line between countries, regions, cities and places, but also broadly speaking, a mutable connectiing line between differnt identities, thinking and human activties. Throughout the entire project Zhao Liang functions as a “recorder” and through the combination of live steaming video, broadcasting, short documentary films and installation he completeds a transgression of artistic boundaries in DRC No. 12. “I didn’t purpose fully choose a specific media. I always intuitively determine the appropriate media based on the subject matter and the needs for form of expression.” (Zhao Liang)
