Assembly Line – A Packet of Salt: Li Xiaofei in Wellington

The Assembly Line films by Li Xiaofei deliberately mix artistic and documentary language. Images of the people and machines are constantly being juxtaposed, restructured, transformed and rebuilt into a provocative movement. The work investigates a number of interconnected problematics  including the relationship between labour and management; people and machine, factory as well as the individual's relationship to collectivity. A Packet of Salt is significant in Li Xiaofei's work since it develops both a poetic and critical vein that has been less evident in his previous work

Assembly Line – A Packet of Salt is on display at Toi Poneke Arts Centre, Wellington, New Zealand, opening 17 Oct 2013 at 5:30pm. The exhibition is open to the public until 9 Nov 2013. More info here and here.
