Shen Yuan's Hurried Words is an installation composed of two works: the first, a giant comb with hairstyles of various ethnic types suspended above it; and the second, around 80 little cloth tongues blown by hair dryers. Both works reference Shen Yuan's experience of dislocation in migration and the relativities of ethnic identity.
