ShanghART will present the “Things From the Gallery Warehouse 6”, which focuses on videos and installations by artists SHI Qing, XIANG Liqing, XU Zhen, and ZHANG Qing.
This time, apart from selecting and displaying some large-scale works stored in the gallery warehouse without high exposure, we also explore a series of motifs which seem to be inconspicuous but in fact related closely with each other. From a slice of Shanghai Electricity Mall by SHI Qing, to XIANG Liqing’s countdown timer, and XU Zhen’s coin that never falls down, all of them are examining, expanding, and playing with a string of words including accident, coincidence, chance, superposition and indeterminacy, in a season of silence and everlasting celebration and review. Moreover, standing closely to the center of the show, ZHANG Qing brings 3 sets of works created between 2007 and 2009.
Since its debut in 2009, Things From the Gallery Warehouse is held in every winter, and has re-contextualized and re-interpreted a number of artists’ works. When the rich fruits accumulated in the past years are uncovered and poured out, the period of six years perhaps becomes a middle point, or even better the foretaste of a new start of another much anticipated voyage.
