Inside a derelict warehouse in the middle of a salt pan, people from around the world are waiting to be taken to a mysterious place that promises a better life.
Kristin Li was born in Chengdu, China, and currently lives and works in Montreal. As a filmmaker and multimedia artist, Kristin creates experimental narratives, animations, documentaries, and installations that explore contemporary formations of power. These projects recontextualize familiar stories, practices, and institutions to reveal the ways that they constrain us in spite of our intentions, and the hidden sites of possibility that we can nonetheless exploit. Kristin’s work has been shown across North America, South America, and Europe, including screenings at Oberhausen (Germany), National Contemporary Art Museum Bucharest (Romania), Cinémathèque quebécoise (Canada), MIX NYC (US), Videoformes International Digital Arts Festival (France), Cinemateca de Curitiba (Brazil), and Winnipeg Cinematheque (Canada).
