The Moon, My Shadow And Me

All about &

Weina Ding, one of my fellow residents at A Coruña’s Museum of Contemporary Art, asked me to pose for a photograph with her latest installation. A dreamy realisation of a poem by the Tang era’s Li Bai, the installation is entitled A Drink With The Moon Is A Company Of Three.

The story of Li Bai’s death has become something of an enduring legend. It is said that he drowned in the Yangtze River, drunkenly trying to embrace the moon’s reflection.
