Shen Xin presented her film Provocation of the Nightingale #1, which involves a personal dialogue between a Buddhist teacher who is an immigrant in Korea, and her student who manages a commercial DNA company. The screening, which was preceded by a performance, confronts how criticism can unfold through emotional states that are informed by socio-political structures.

Park Nights is the Serpentine’s experimental, interdisciplinary live platform, programmed for the Galleries’ annual architectural commission, the Serpentine Pavilion.
