Project David III: David’s Paradise Single-channel video installation, 19’17”, 2008

David’s Paradise
Jun-Jieh Wang

Wang’s high-definition video installation is a meditation on elegance, slowness and solitude. In a timeless universe, a character, real or imagined, passes through two spheres, an intimate indoor space and a sheltered garden outside. Progress is made from left to right, perhaps from present to past, from this moment to the land of memories – or from life to death. David’s Paradise is a gentle and uncertain place, where we might encounter traces of lost friends, though we remain unable to reach out to them in word or touch. This miniature epic creates a space to connect the artist’s nostalgia with one’s own intimate dreams. All this comes simply, without moralizing, violence or haste.
