<Binlang Xishi> is a three-channel video that delves into the concept of "Uncleanness" across various social and cultural contexts. The project comprises three segments filmed in different regions: South Korea, Taiwan, and Germany. Mooni Perry explores the discourses surrounding the sex industry and the social stigma of prostitution. The project originated from the question of how to define the notion of (un)cleanness. When something is out of its rightful place, the boundaries become blurred and ambiguous, leading to its perceived dirtiness. While there may be debate around what constitutes one's rightful place, Perry utilizes the power of "in-appropriation" to challenge and subvert the discourse.
