‘I prefer to put my body in physical conditions that ordinary people have not experienced. It is only in such conditions that I am able to experience that relationship between the body and the spirit. (…) And the body is the only direct way through which I come to know society and society comes to know me. The body is the proof of identity. The body is language.’
(Zhang Huan: A Pilgrim in Santiago de Compostela, cat. expo., Barcelona, Cotthen Gallery, 2001, p. 32 – 39.)
