Gu Cheng, the exiled Chinese poet whose poetry and person form the basis of 3 Poems, lived on a small island in Auckland’s Hauraki Gulf. The video images are of Gu Cheng and his poet wife Xie Ye on Waiheke Island, animations of Gu Cheng’s disturbingly whimsical drawings and the poem’s Chinese text. The tape uses diverse sounds and music – cooking oil, a Russian folksong sung in Chinese by the couple and – potatoes!
