What is the Sound of Breathing

HD video
Through video, live performance and installation, Jiang’s work immerses viewers in an atmosphere both visceral and literal, embodied and perceptional. Grounded in reverence for life and nature, her work investigates synesthesia, sensational perception and improvisation, in conjunction with natural scenes, set within the form of slow hyper-controlled movement and improvisational voice. To uncover the potentials of the body and connect deeper to the self, the recurring forms—poem, limbs, sound, syllables and breath—are improvised in synergy rendered as a contemplative moving meditation. The state of mind is expressed by the integrated body in liminality.
