Chen Qingqing

Imagining herself as a restless ghost, perhaps finding another male ghost seeking companionship, Chen has done battle with her own – and others people’s – interpretation of history, searching for the kind of freedom she has yet to find, either here, in Europe or anywhere else she has travelled in the world.
