Hao Ni-Ghost Hit Wall

“Ghost Hit Wall” is the literal translation of “???”, the Mandarin Chinese expressionof getting lost, going in a circle and not being able to get out. “The idea is that when traveling in remote areas, a person is obstructed by walls that ghosts have placed in front of them, thus forcing that person to wander in endless circles,” says Ni. “People also use this term to describe problems with no real solution.”

The works featured in “Ghost Hit Wall” are infused with visual information that encourages viewers to contemplate what it is like to get lost in the various shapes, patterns, words and clues on display. Through organizing, manipulating, repeating, and translating everyday objects and scenarios, the exhibition excavates the different material layers in life to examine the tension, dread and uncertainty under the duress of continuously accelerating time.
