Beads of Sweat…
at Huang Bian Station, Guangzhou, China

Li Yao: Sugar is more than sugar. It has become a media of consciousness and a carrier of anxieties.
It has been endowed with spatial, aesthetic and social relation implications.
Sugar is now a potential production tool instead of a mere kind of consumer goods.
The project “Beads of sweat…”seems to care about the tension between daily and creative work of artists, and the accompanying thinking dilemma.
In particular, it concerns the barriers and anxieties of artists' self identity and creating consciousness.
