Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the events following the author's shooting performance at the China Avant-garde Art Exhibition in Beijing, China, in February 1989. She returned to the museum at about four in the afternoon to surrender and she was arrested by the police. On the way to her detention cell after her interrogation she met Lan Jun again. He smiled at her and it melted her uptight state of mind and a kind of romantic feeling was involuntarily born in her heart. When she was released Lan Jun was there again. He accompanied her to the reopened museum, introduced her to the curator Gao Tianyu and also went with her to Hangzhou when she went home to her parents.
