first look at Ren Hang’s works, I immediately thought of Beckett’s later works, especially the short play “Not I” that I spent a lot of time reading through and writing my senior thesis on.  That play was visually very disturbing, with just a gigantic red mouth on the stage.  as I sift through more, I think there is definitely a lot of beauty, but more than anything, i feel so much despair, disconnection, and loneliness.  When you take a young human body and strip it down naked, through Ren Hang’s eyes, it’s those things – loneliness, vulnerability, desperation, and even decay.
