Wu Tsang’s 2016 Artpace resident artist exhibition You Sad Legend is all connected to famous Chinese revolutionary poet named Qui Jin and her intimate friend Wu Zhuying who was a calligrapher. Tsang told Artpace, “This project is a love story about their relationship. It’s a story about two people who wanted to be together at a time when that was difficult, and not because being gay was difficult, but rather their life circumstances didn’t allow them to be together. It’s a very tragic and fleeting missed love connection that was transformative for both of them in their lifetimes. The prints such as I Imagine the Breeze is your Caress are all mistranslations, residues of events, collaborations, or community interactions. The language speaks to the historical relationship but also to the present moment and exploring queer identity in China and in our world.
