Entry Description

The idea of this artwork is taken from the original novel titled "CHINA' by author, Jade Y. Chen, in which it expresses the double meaning and structure of the word, "China", which can be referred to China (the country) or China (porcelain). The imaging concepts for CHINA-tears china come from the change of porcelain styles in different times in history, and the variation of porcelain during its heating process. These concepts are transformed into projected images and displayed in different locations on stage, implying different times. In addition, specially-designed texts (by calligrapher董陽孜) accompany the projected images on the screen for a flowing effect.
