Chinese people in my bed

Even more when I was in China, I felt a bit alienated from the Chinese., almost like we are from another planet.

In China I felt even more that there was a huge distance between me and the Chinese people. Sometimes it was a bit like I was surrounded by aliens. In an attempt to become a bit closer with them I invited some citizens from Shenzhen to one by one enter my hotel room and get in my bed. But having suddenly all those people there made me feel even more estranged. But I realized that it was probably the same for the Chinese people that suddenly had to enter a bed full of people they don’t know, even though they had the same nationality.

This project is made in collaboration with the He Xiangning Art Museum in Shenzhen.

Although I think they felt exactly the same, stepping in a bed whit so many people you don't know, whether they are Chinese or not.
