Premiering at the prestigious Istanbul Biennale in 2015 to critical acclaim, In Course of the Miraculous is based on 3 recorded events that end mysteriously and as the film develops, the progression enters the dominion of fiction, creating imagined dialogues discussing larger themes of action, courage and bravery. The exhibition is a continuation of Cheng Ran’s investigation of the language of film, experimenting with the coded and symbolic connotations of moving image. The movie and video installation seek to explore the relationships between time, space and audience, whilst creating new aesthetic frameworks over 9-hour viewing experience.
