The Utopia Series. 2017

The Utopia, Angela Yuen Ka Yee, Video installation, 3 channels, 3 10", 2017

Angela observed the unfolding of the urban sprawl in Beijing, as the sixth ring and then seventh ring road encircled this rapidly growing city.  Villages are destroyed and pushed further out to the fringes, the land turned into the government standard of utopia. But what is left after this standardization?  Manufactured products from industries are picked up and gathered together to create a stop- motion video resembling the country’s once-endless sprawl.
