For the 2012 Liverpool Biennial, Wong built on his work exploring identity in relation to geographic location. Adding to his existing work Making Chinatown, in which Wong drew on Polanski’s iconic film Chinatown (1974), Wong will here adopt the role of the ‘detective’. The work focuses on the stereotypical role of the ‘Chinese detective’ who has taken on so many forms in cinema’s history.
Wong’s ‘investigation’ takes him on a journey through the world’s Chinatowns – uncovering the constructs of identity and place – and leading him, eventually, to Liverpool.
