This edition by Wu Tsang was produced by Nottingham Contemporary on the occasion of the exhibition Devotional Documentation (Part I), 2017. This work depicts Qiu Jin, the female Chinese warrior and revolutionary of the early 20th century, who is often referenced within Tsang’s practice. All profits raised from the sale of this limited edition work support Nottingham Contemporary’s free programme of exhibitions, educational activities and research programmes.
Wu Tsang (b. 1982, US) is a filmmaker, artist and performer based in Los Angeles. Her work is concerned with queer and trans-community practices. In 2018, Tsang received a MacArthur "genius" grant. Tsang’s installations, performances, sculptures, and videos move fluidly between documentary and fiction. For Tsang the relationship between the cinematic and the social is inherently problematic, and her film-making becomes a testing ground for collaboration and repeated, perhaps ritualistic, refusals of representation.
