MOUNTAIN RIVER JUMP!
April – June 2022
Residency in cooperation with Theater Neumarkt
Mountain River Jump! is an artist duo founded in 2016 by twin sisters Huang Shan and Huang He, who were born in 1985. The duo has a variety of creative formats in art, often applying „divination consulting“ as a performance to examine the potential of such art medium, and to interact with the audience at the intrinsic level. With their studies into Oriental mysticism and folklore, the artists pry open the topics of identity politics, labor issues, feminism, life politics, modernity and others. They pay attention to the embodiment of mythological clues in a daily context, attempting to carry out „psychoanalysis“ of the reality, and reflecting on the materialist culture within modern China and its psychological status. Huang Shan and Huang He presently works and lives in Foshan, Guangdong.
