Su Tong
Binu and the Great Wall


Binu and the Great Wall

Binu And The Great Wall is a wonderful myth retold in the words of Su Tong, the author of ‘Rice’.  The myth of Binu and how her tears washed away the Great Wall have been passed down through the ages. It is a tale of hardship, brutality and undying love. Su Tong’s version of the myth, brings to the reader the harshness and brutality that led to the constuction of the wall and the terrible effects it had on the common people.

I ve been having quite a few conversations about disability art - what constitutes disability art? do we label certain art disability art..is it art fuelled/inspired by our being disabled. At what level is art to be labeled as such? Would I want to be labeled as a practitioner of disability art?

is art an aspiration?

However, this is so premature. I have not produced anything yet. Art is produced by years of hard work, it should stem from a certain craftmanship, of angst, the throes of creating something...I am at a very embryonic stage. I am in the stage of research of looking for my tools, my medium.

But when I start, I would need to create a space, physical, virtual and mental. How do I start to learn my craft? I want to create an experience of disability intersected with ethnicity and mythology and multiple identities.

Just like learning any craft it takes time - it was suggested that I would be better to do a Ph d with my time. I agree. Whatever it is I should go and mix with some people who actually does some art.

Maybe I shoould just go to bed.
