Join us on e-flux Video & Film for an online screening of Xin Liu’s Living Distance (2019-20), on view from Monday, February 22 through Sunday, February 28, 2021.
Living Distance is a fantasy and a mission, in which a wisdom tooth is sent to outer space and back down to Earth again. Propelled by a crystalline robotic sculpture called EBIFA, the tooth becomes a newborn entity in outer space. Its performance is about death, body, and home, in a world where our science exploration and spiritual journeys are diverging.
The video is presented here alongside an interview with Xin Liu conducted by Emma Enderby.
Living Distance is the first installment of Crashing into the Future, a program of films and interviews convened by Cao Fei, and comprising the fifth cycle of Artist Cinemas, a long-term, online series of film programs curated by artists for e-flux Video & Film.
