Borderline at Platform China

Published on July 2, 2007

Last night was the closing of this year’s Borderline festival. Platform China in Caochangdi hosted the event, which included 10 or so video works installed in the gallery space. My favorite of the lot is titled “The Welcome Rain Falling From the Sky.” Unfortunately, none of the pieces in the show were tagged, so I didn’t get the artist’s name.

The 1 minute long video displays the artists captured in a kind of real-world video game. Objects are tossed at him from above, which he must dodge by leaping back and forth across the white line drawn on the floor.
