What do I really want?
What do I really desire?
You know it, you feel it too.
The Serpents of Desire are waiting for you.
Walk along the water to find it.
Be careful of those animals and beasts, they can smell it.
They can sense your hunger and they are hungry too.
Go for it, the snake is waiting.
For his first solo exhibition in New York, Tzu-Huan presents The Yellow Snake Is Waiting, a video installation created during his Flux Factory residency period. The video features footage of a fictional story to find the ultimate solution of never-ending desire by fusing two well-known mythical stories from East to West. The narrative explores the fog of memories and makes transparent the mystery of desire.
Tzu-Huan Lin is a Taiwanese video and installation artist based in New York. He received an MFA in Digital Arts from Pratt Institute in 2013. He creates work in which everyday objects are altered or detached from their natural functions by manipulation to create different functions and contexts.
