RoCH fans & legends (solo exhibition)

lok, susan pui san (2015) RoCH fans & legends (solo exhibition). [Show/Exhibition]


'RoCH Fans & Legends' is a solo exhibition that premieres a new body of work commissioned by Derby QUAD and the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art (CFCCA), Manchester, in partnership with Animate Projects and the University of Salford. Featuring single and multichannel moving image works for gallery and online, 'RoCH Fans & Legends' draws on fan uploads of numerous adaptations of The Condor Trilogy (1957-61), a classic ‘new wuxia’ epic by Louis Cha aka Jin Yong. The project explores some of the genre's recurring tropes and translations – its fantasies, landscapes, and archetypes, as well as its 'poor' and 'pidgin' iterations in diasporic popular culture.
