Kan Xuan: Millet Mounds is at once a meditation on China’s imperial past and a broad survey of its present, in the form of 164 stop-motion videos, each of which unfolds before one of China’s known extant imperial tombs. Kan Xuan’s (b. 1972) largest and most significant project to date, Millet Mounds is the result of over 100 days and 28,000 kilometers of continuous, on-the-road research and shooting in early 2012. Kan Xuan’s lens claims, catalogues, and personalizes a centuries-long lineage of history and power.
