Ma Qiusha: Mars
Mars presents the audience with an expanse of fine red sand. A macro lens shows the astonishing texture of red sand particles while aerial shots display sand dunes that show no trace of human activity. This perspective transcends individual experience by depicting the mysterious surface of a celestial body. The huge waves of red sand rolls endlessly like the infinite expanding of the universe. While the exhibition’s Chinese title - a transliteration of the English word Wonderland - seems devoid of meaning, it provides a fertile ground for the imagination to roam free. It takes the body’s corporeal existence as the starting point and casts the audience into the midst of a desert which echoes the sound of the universe.
