Yan Li “killing haze”

 

 

I’m fortunate enough to be curating an exhibition coming up next month at the Ryan James gallery. More on that project in the coming weeks.

Part of the display will be six new works by Yan Li. One of these is his seal script performance of the following poem:

 

一觉醒来

发现这个早晨比平时美好

还发现手上有血迹

这才想起来

昨晚我杀掉了一群雾霾

 

2014.

 

The moment I awake

I discover this morning

Is more beautiful than ever

I also discover

My hands have blood marks

Then I remember

Last night I killed a patch of haze

 

2014.
