Artist Statement

Angel Anqi Gu is a filmmaker and screenwriter. Her latest work A Collaboration discusses the relationship between artists, the art world and artworks. Both the narrative residing in her videos and writings are often used as tools to explore topics such as power dynamics and censorship. Her take on human relationships and her interest in social issues are greatly influenced by her experience living in multiple continents.
Her current script that is under development is a social commentary on the current situation women in China face, the conflict between new and old values, and the social expectation for women. The script features four ordinary women as typical representations of women in different stages in their lives —— daughter, wife, mother; and uses a fictional institution as a place that aims to keep the traditional values in a rapidly modernizing society.
