Qigemu is a duo consisting of lovers April Lin and Jasmine Lin exploring the interstices of movement, visual media, and identity. In < 流动 >, the transformations of information, bodies, and energies in the globalised Internet age are played with through a movement-based exploration. Set in Lisbon to the backdrop of Lofimaker’s sampling of Chinese state coverage of Lunar New Year celebrations, < 流动 > operates within a space that defies the fixity of boundaries, cultural, geographical, and conceptual, and encourages the viewer to reflect on their own positions within this hybridity.
Qigemu's latest film, Reality Fragment, is showing in film festivals in London, Lisbon, Beijing, Winnipeg, and more throughout Spetember 2018. Check out Jasmine at jasmine-lin.net and follow April on Vimeo and @babe__lin
