The light boxes are showing on a lower level in a labyrinth of dark rooms. This is where Chen reveals what happens when the internal becomes twisted and contorted, it needs to unravel and play out different dramas to unfold and become manageable once more.
Once these readymade objects enter the space of the light box a narrative begins and a language is born. A disemboweled television set frames the work "Clone Love" showing a little foot stretching out from the knobs making the TV sets a mysterious vessel for rebirth.
