Yang Zhichao, 'Chinese Bible' (2009)

Jul. 13, 2015

'Chinese Bible’ (2009) is a performance installation comprising 3000 diaries and notebooks collected by Beijing-based artist Yang Zhichao (b1963). The diaries were bought from second-hand markets over a three-year period, but their content spans the first five decades of Communist China (1949-1999).
