Premiere of Su Hui's Picture of the Turning Sphere

At University Galleries of Illinois State University in the exhibit Jen Bervin: Shift Rotate Reflect; Selected Work (1997-2020) . The exhibit runs from August 15 to December 13.

Su Hui’s Picture of the Turning Sphere (2016–2020) is a collaboration of artist and poets Jen Bervin and filmmaker Charlotte Lagarde. The multi-channel video and textile installation, self-described as a “feminist listening room,” focuses on Chinese poet Su Hui and her 4th-century reversible poem, “Xuanji Tu.” Structured on an astronomical gauge and stitched in five colors, the poem was written in a 29 x 29-character grid and can be read in any direction to yield almost 8,000 possible interpretations.
