Shanzhai 山寨 is a collaboration with Pascal Dreier, Duoni Liu and Leh-Qiao Liao during the recidency at European Academy for Music and Performing Arts, Montepulciano. Work starts from 10:38 in the video.
Shanzhai 山寨 is the Chinese neologism for fake. Technical or aesthetic modifications give fakes their own identity.
Shanzhai 山寨 is a city in the mountains with which we are thinking practices of replication, reference and faking as an equally European phenomenon.
