Chun Hua Catherine Dong with Robert Black
The Other Words is a durational performance that explores the otherness in translation. Translation is political, and translating a text is like chewing up rice and then feeding it to somebody else. Dong is interested in transfiguration and transformation – the shape and form of languages, and how translation cuts across cultural barriers and begins to address how we relate to the world.
