Fissure presents - The Storm in the Morning 2017-18
Su Jiehao’s latest work, is an autobiographic one.
By returning to the tradition of remembering in classical Chinese literature, the artist aims to create new dialogues or connections between the experience and memory, languages and images, the present and the past.
The poetic lens quietly blurs the boundary between space and time. In this work, Su Jiehao abstracts the subtle sense of belonging from personal memories. As the American sinologist Stephen Owen (1946-) elaborates:
“There are chains of remembrance, linking one past to pasts still more remote, and sometimes also reaching into a speculative future that will remember our remembering. And as we discover and commemorate the rememberers of the past, it is easy to conclude that in remembering we ourselves will be remembered and will be worthy of memory.”
