YAO CONG (UK), Under Blue, 6:38, 2015
"Under Blue" explores gender politics through beauty, pleasure, disgust, danger, violence, the erotic and the artificial, imparting an uneasy feeling of voyeuristic power to the viewer.
"Under Blue" broadly speaking fits into the performance and body art trend in video art, but its exclusive use of close ups and the effect of not really understanding what we’re looking at. In the work, the fragmented body, color and textures appear between real and surreal, our attention to those colors and textures is greatly rewarded, even as we understand the context even less.
