In this videowork, Strangis refers to the DVD presenting the 2008 Olimpic Games in Pechino as a most meaningful subject with respect to the way China is currently introducing to the global scenery… By selecting some very short sequences that he calls “sensible interstices of the audiovisual product”, Strangis is re-editing one of the spectacular and magnificent choreographies by enhancing the features that most strikes him through multiplying and re-spacing devices: “I’ve always been impressed by this founding aspect of the Chinese culture which I feel both envy and fear for I envy their abilities in being a single corps but I also fear the loss of identity that this brings along.
I have kept my video within this bivalence, as expressed by a sountrack which is mysteriously hollow and contemplative at the same time”
