In a dark and red room, a corner of a particular forgotten history can be found: a span of historical events stretching from the first gene-edited human babies in China in 2018 and a global pandemic in 2020, until the birth of Genetic Salon a thousand years later. This history celebrates human genetic engineering as the core of the interpretation of the history through a display of video works, text and archival objects. However, it appears that shortly afterwards the Genetic Salon closed down and this historical narrative was forgotten. The exhibits in this room are dusty, and some of them become fragmented. The projector mostly reflects a red screen, does the projector get broken?

The theme of “waiting room” for the story of Genetic Salon, allowing the audience to select randomly and watch various video clips. The uncertain playability echoes the worldview of the Genetic Salon. In a mysterious technological world, people’s lives are full of uncertainty, while the power to be able to “randomly switch options” makes us willing to wait at all costs.

Wilfully Blindness invites three young artists to participate in a romantic film shoot with narrative scenes of cheating and betrayal, based around the inextricable triangle in art transactions.

With a French song, Emilia, Jasper and Bobby will rehearse their French parts in the song, while adding lyrics in their own mother tongues. The film was shot at Oslo National Academy of Fine Art (Khio), the school of Bobby and her crew are currently studying at.
