The Happiness of Obedience

So good! Another gem from 一条 YIT. Their mini-videos don’t seem to stick to a predetermined theme and frequently end up being wonderfully unique and authentic. 

 (5 min video—Mandarin w/ English Subtitles).

“In 2015, unwed female artist Guo Yingguang above the average of marriage had an experience at the famous blind date corner in Shanghai People’s Park. She was shocked by the crowd of parents and the dating ads.

She began to do research, and created a piece of performance art: she posted an ad to promote herself in order to find a date, but she got laughed at. She took pictures and video of these scenes, and made a series of photographs called “The Happiness of Obedience”.”
