Making Chinatown by Ming Wong

Ming Wong, Making China Town, 2011

I learned about Ming Wong from e-flux.  This is what e-flux had to say.

Read about his work on REDCAT‘s website.

My initial attraction to the work was purely visual but after reading a bit about it my interest grew,

“Working through the visual styles and tropes of such iconic film directors as Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Wong Kar-wai and Ingmar Bergman, Wong’s practice considers the means through which subjectivity and geographic location are constructed by motion pictures.” -REDCAT

“Wong’s reinterpretation, Making Chinatown, transforms the exhibition space into a studio backlot and examines the original film’s constructions of language, performance and identity.” -e-flux
