Liên Hoàng-Xuân, The end of The Internet, 2021, video clip fiction, 4min

“This work adapts the kitsch aesthetic of sentimental karaoke videos by using a popular Taiwanese love song entitled Heart to Heart sung in Mandarin by a famous singer from the 1980s, Shen Yan. With a well-balanced sense of pastiche, Liên Hoàng-Xuân stages a dancer practicing playback in a theatrical scenography that distorts the idea of folklore to offer an “Asian” representation without any real referent. (…)
Love appears to be a completely artificial theme facing the international relations and history that intrude at the heart of this simulacrum, halfway between childhood memory and critical observation of the cultural forms of our conditioning.”

Liên Hoàng-Xuân, Au dernier soir sur Terre, 2021. Colour video : 20’00’’

“On October 17, 2019, Lebanon saw the birth of an unprecedented popular uprising, uniting the people against a corrupt political elite installed since the end of the civil war. After a few weeks of hope and jubilation, the Lebanese “thawra” (revolution) looks like a long shipwreck, a slow entry into the night. Arrived in Beirut in September 2019, Liên Hoàng-Xuân was caught up in the movement and its chaotic rhythm. For months, she filmed Beirut’s demonstrations and occupied squares day and night, following the ever-diminishing pulse of the street. “Au dernier soir sur cette terre” attempts to capture the intimacy of this Lebanese “revolution”, its atmosphere, its own rhythm, its “offs” and climaxes, its oddities.“
