Perspectives: Lu Chunsheng

Arthur M. Sackler Gallery
1050 Independence Ave., SW
Washington, DC

Location: Pavilion, Street Level

As part of the Perspectives series of contemporary Asian art, Chinese photographer and video artist Lu Chunsheng's video History of Chemistry I is on view. In this video, a group of men wanders from somewhere beyond the seashore through a vast landscape to an abandoned steel factory. The journey through a vaguely familiar but remote world conveys the sense of dislocation that comes from modernization.
