ADHD The presentation titled ADHD, after the Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is a strong single piece installation. A chrome sphere, resides in a fountain of ink, as windshield wipers move repetitively trying to remove the continuous flow of ink over the sphere. This Sisyphean task mirrors the chronic repetition of the actions of man. Whether wasteful and harmful for the environment or simply maddening for the protagonist, human life, contemporarily as well as historically, is a repetition of behaviors, often frantic. The work, as well as Zhou Wendou’s practice, seeks to raise questions, and challenge the contemporary condition. The relation between the visual experience of the work, some obvious references it conveys and a title that adds significance to it invite reflection. Repetitiveness and lack of attention, a clocked mechanical movement and hyperactivity or impulsivity should be at odds. However, while stigmatized medically within the context of the individual, this pattern of behavior has been adopted by Human society at large. Zhou Wendou invites the audience to reflect on the consequences of a culture diagnosed with ADHD.
