Hai Bo in Beijing

by Travis Jeppesen on October 16, 2012

“As I drifted through Hai’s works, I wanted each one I saw to be the stuff of my own memories, so intense was the sense, not of déjà vu, but of desiring to inhabit those liminal zones in which you feel yourself to be more of a ghost than a live presence. Because while it is possible to “enter into” one of Hai’s images, you never feel like you’d much be noticed by its inhabitants. Maybe that’s what the function of the double framing is: so much preciosity requires extra containment.”
