Kyung Hwa Shon and Hiu Tung Lau
The Snapdragons, 2017
Three channel colour video installation
7 minutes 15 seconds
One car, two iPhones, three snapdragons and four people. A Korean artist, a Chinese tourist and two Ukrainian curators went on a road trip together from Kharkov to Dnipro in Ukraine. The three-channel film pays playful tribute to Dnipro – used to be called “the rocket closed city”. The ghost of the Soviet Union and the voice of the God (played by Siri) are hovering over the film in which questions the system and ideology of modern society.
