Her Love is a Bleeding Tank is a one-take visual poem. The narrator Yasmine is nobody but my self-projection, and a concentration of delicateness, purity, as well as all virtues which are not celebrated in this fast-paced world. An eye is a theater, in which I slowly replay the life experience of the little Yasmine who could never fulfill her dream of being an idol, her endurance of unnecessary hardship, and the relationship between stoicism and love.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Born in Guangzhou, currently working and living between New York and Hong Kong, Anlan Huang (Yasmine) is an artist and writer. She received her BA (Hons) from Creative Media in City University of Hong Kong and an MA in Literary and Cultural Studies from the University of Hong Kong. She is pursuing an MFA degree in Parsons School of Design.
As an active human observer, Yasmine is wandering among poetry, philosophy and underground culture, fascinated by undetermined anecdote and myth. She plays with her multiple personas and combines moving images, installations and performances by mirroring her trauma to a broader context of cultural studies, to further transcribe the co-existing love and hurt.
