Wen Wei Wang
March 20 > 23, 2019
Dialogue decomposes linguistic and technological systems, from the most artificial to the most sophisticated, in an effort to understand universal communication – verbal or otherwise – and collective experience. Nationality, mother tongue, sexual orientation, etc. are all factors that can complicate an immigrant’s integration into a country where he does not speak the language and does not understand its culture or its codes.
Based on Wen Wei Wang’s personal experience as a Chinese immigrant arriving in Canada without a word of English, Dialogue explores the essential desire to be understood, the fundamental urgency of being able to communicate. It portrays how human ingenuity kicks in when confronted with language hurdles, as well as the underlying sense of loneliness triggered by an inability to talk with others.
