Yao Qingmei’s video “the Trial” will be participating in the group exhibition “Bycycle Thieves” at Para Site, Hong Kong. 

Bicycle Thieves is interested in the fine line between sharing and stealing. Paying tribute to theeponymous Italian neorealist film in which a worker spends all his family savings to buy thebicycle needed for a new job but ends up losing the bike at the hands of a thief on his first dayof work, the group exhibition extends the film’s concern to a contemporary context andhighlights individuals’ precarious status as situated within increasingly tricky relations tovarious institutions and systems.
