single channel video installation, 8', ed. of 5 (2006)
His video installation "8.848-1.86" (2005) documents an expedition to Mount Everest. Here, Xu Zhen removed 1.86 meters of the mountain's peak and transported it home to be exhibited in a large display cabinet. The video, among other allusions, is a subtle and humorous commentary on China's policy of expansion.
