About “ Tides”

From 1989 to 2019, from China to Australia, a history of 30 years. On a beach in Sydney, facing the incoming tide, Xiao Lu plants 30 bamboo poles, one by one, into the sand at first light. The performance landscape created by Xiao Lu’s action and the waves refers to the past and the future, resistance and letting go, the individual and history.
