Chongqing Rocks

Chongqing Rocks, 2007

A search for the unblemished and long forgotten corners in Chongqing, a city in China with an overwhelming amount of ongoing construction. On rooftops, train tracks and in tunnels; fauna and flora pogo’s its way through the concrete. This and drawings of (punk) concerts and found words and expressions are the material for a short animated projection.

The animated drawings were part of the group show „Exploring Chongqing“, by art collective Palatti in collaboration with and on the campus of South West Art University, Chongqing, China, 2007.

Palatti produced a catalogue with contributions of all of the participating artists during the span of the residency. Find out more about the catalogue or how to get one here.
