Different Bodies, Different Myths

The Fault Line

The project takes fragments of the artist’s family history back to a hybrid space where a simulation of the actual environment and imagination of the missing archive are established. Navigated through a video and props from the physical space, The Fault Line shows the artist’s practice as resistance to the disconnection of memory between generations and attempts to discuss the missing archive, not as an absence but as a presence that can be examined.


Yili Zhao is an interdisciplinary practitioner working in the fields of installation art, speculative design, simulation, photography and business. Her inspiration comes from exploration of material objects and archival research, through which she believes references can be found to examine and shape ourselves and the world in which we presently live.
