It’s been almost a year since your Grand Prize win in 2021. How has the past year been for you? Are you working on any new projects?
距离您在 2021 年赢得大奖已将近一年了。过去的一年对您来说怎么样？你在进行任何新的项目吗？
This year passed very quickly. The focus of my creation and life has shifted from Beijing to my hometown in Hunan. Since I fell from the waterfall in my hometown in May 2021, I have rested for more than half a year. I launched a new experimental film project this year, a commissioned creative project for a university in Norway, scheduled to be completed in August, with a screening and exhibition at the university in September.
Having previously participated as a finalist, what has the experience been like joining as a judge this year?
It is my honour to participate in the selection process as a judge this year, which has enabled me to understand the selection mechanism of this award more systematically. In my opinion, it is a very fair and mature mechanism; importantly, I browsed all these creative works from artists from different countries and with different cultural backgrounds which also broaden my horizons, and it was a good opportunity to learn and understand.
