"Lock Again" is one of Yang Fudong's representative single channel video, which is shot during the same period as " Seven Intellectuals in Bamboo Forest". He took a series of photos as he shot the film, and this is one of them. It shows two young men wear the uniform of 70's - sometimes they look like two runaways. They want to escape reality which is impossible to cast off. They yearn for the bright sunshine life, expecting the time to be captured, to exchange for a calmness of the heart. Yang suggests in the world beyond through a town during a moment of reprieve. By putting the larger historical context behind the screens, Yang is better able to focus on the nuances of the sentiments involved, and expose individual aspirations beneath the crass noise of the times. For him these human qualities are more significant and true than abstract ideas, and they point to sensibilities representative of this age.
