About works / performance
Lo’s artistic works in recent years convey a form of research-based practice that explores the capacities of time-based media and the manifestation of history. With his current projects on Jean-Claude Eloy, Jones Town, and this history of Montana and Native Americans, he attempts to broaden his artistic scope to challenge the existing norms of audio-visual media and pose profound reflections on the discourse and the way of illustrating history. These reflections are not only about the subject matter per se, but it constitutes what French philosopher Gilbert Simondon called "key points" that constitutes an anchor which brings forth a new reticulation. Ultimately, it becomes a detour in thinking about universal issues such as religion, land, violence, and history.
