3x3x6 - Shu Lea Cheang
Venice Biennale 2019

Inspired by ten cases of imprisonment due to gender and sexual nonconformity, both past and present, the exhibition questions the legal and visual regimes that have formed sexual and gender norms during different ages. The work’s title “3x3x6” refers to the new architectural design of prisons throughout the world: a 3 x 3 square-meter cell constantly monitored by 6 cameras.
