For the video City Light, Chinese artist Yang Fudong follows a young man and his doppelganger on a day in the city. This work tells a timelessly hip detective story in alternating black & white and color with glimpses of tempered humor. The plot is detached from the liveliness of the cityscape to make scenes that are serenely beautiful yet humorous.
