Christian Nicolay + Ya-chu Kang

Sunshine Wall (2010)

Sunshine Wall (2010) is a collaborative video between Ya-chu Kang and Christian Nicolay. The video uses the wall as a metaphor for Life and Death, and the apparent separation between the two can be seen by the degeneration of a material and in the rebirth of another.

There is a recurrent insistence to document the present in remembering the past, to keep a connection to tradition and a conversation of our social and cultural relationships to the landscape around us. Through this exploration the artists ask the viewers to re-examine their idea of afterlife, and the traditions and practices associated with it.
