“ …at the heart of this critical language, between several discourses, those of sociology, of semiology, and of psychoanalysis—but that, by ultimate dissatisfaction with all of them, I was bearing witness to the only sure thing that was in me (however naive it might be): a desperate resistance to any reductive system. For each time, having resorted to any such language to whatever degree, each time I felt it hardening and thereby tending to reduction and reprimand, I would gently leave it and seek elsewhere: I began to speak differently.”
                                                                                                     --   Roland Barthes (1980), Camera Lucida

    This work represents the third stage of my exploration into the relationship between text and power—text and the body. Archaeologist Zhang Guangzhi suggests that from the very day of its inception, language has carried the weight of human power and desire. As language evolves and expands, it not only defines the environment around us but also gradually delineates every cell of the human body. How will the four letters "ACGT," which decode genes, control our bodies? Is human perception still beyond the reach of power mechanisms?

    该作品是我关于文字与权力的探索的第三个阶段——文字与身体。考古学家张广直认为,文字从诞生之日起就承载着人类的权力和欲望。 随着文字的演变和扩张,它不仅定义了我们周围的环境,也逐渐定义了人体的每个细胞。 “ACGT”这四个解释基因的字母将如何控制我们身体?人类的感知力是否还在权力机制的控制范围之外?
