Shanghai Redux | “The Radical Space” project, organized by artist SHI Qing since 2016, mainly focuses on reworking a series of old films in order to discuss contemporary issues based on the historical footage, re-reading, re-discussing and re-awaking the time and space that had been frozen in films. So far, five films including Today, I rest (1959), Under the Bridge (1983), Work in the Shipyard (1975), The Aunt’s Postmodern Life (2006), Spring Forever (1959) have been reworked.

“Moving images” is a way of writing that requires constant renewal. New writings and rehearsals unfold through a call back to spaces in Shanghai that have been written into cinema since the 1920s. They are “Reduxes”. They are clips ad episodes that rotate on an axis of speculation rather than being re-makes. They are re-understandings, and offer perspectives on spaces through conversations, new lines of acting, imitations and site-walks. (Excerpt of the project from Shanghai Biennial 2016)
