Jennifer Wen Ma: Cry Joy Park—Gardens of Dark and Light

This is a short documentary film produced in conjunction with the exhibition “Jennifer Wen Ma: Cry Joy Park—Gardens of Dark and Light”.

Cry Joy Park—Gardens of Dark and Light is an investigation into the construct of a utopia, inspired by the history of Charleston, South Carolina: a cultural and artistic capital of the American South, and an exemplar of its opulence and beauty. This installation aims to present both an alluring, gorgeous and otherworldly garden, and its darker counterpart. The installation features two separate gardens: a Dark one and a Light one, both representing a yin/yang balance between utopias and dystopias.

Directed by Dave Stewart Brown and Sixuan Geng (USA)
