The title of Shi Yong’s 2018 solo exhibition “a (  ) bird be released from the top of a certain tower” comes from Borges’ short story The Lottery in Babylon. Shi Yong cited this statement and deliberately added a “(  )” in between “a bird”, which made a likely common event to be suspenseful, metaphor and reality overlap at here,two interacting text presenting an aggressive attitude to the reality.
