A Tale of Love Gone Wrong for Pandaman.

A Court Case November 2003, And Also a Story about the End of a Love Story 2008

single channel video, 15', ed. of 9   (2003)

"A Tale of Love Gone Wrong for Pandaman," is more than parody. In 2003, Zhao Bandi sued two media businesses for publishing his poster without acknowledging his copyright. During the hearing, Zhao Bandi sits, forlorn, with his Panda. At the end, he reads as evidence a letter from his ex-lover, in which she explains why she is leaving him. She describes Zhao Bandi's relationship to the toy-panda as being sick, and denies that the SARS poster could have anything to do with his personality. Because of the letter (or despite it) Zhao Bandi wins the case. It's reality that produces fiction that produces reality.
