Zhen, Actually I Am Also Very Blurred (2000). In this installation
work by Shanghai artist Xu Zhen, photographs of a range of different body
parts are printed onto small Post-It’s and densely clustered on
a long gallery wall. From this proliferation of fragments, which museum
visitors are free to rearrange, a recognizable whole can never emerge.
In this section, many works document performances that use the human body
to fashion sometimes disturbing metaphors for the violent changes that
have swept through every corner of Chinese life in recent decades.
