CHAN Aftermath HD 4

Aftermath (In Memory of His Body) [with Nose Chan] / Hongkong / 2004 / 13’57 / 4:3

Aftermath investigates both the choreographer and video director’s point of view for the memory of a dying body. Taking the body as both the object and the subject, this piece abstracts the “time and space” of a dying body. The time travel of a spirit (or the soul) parallel to the “flash-back” happens in one’s mind right before his/her body dies.
