Wel­come to Bird­head World Again Bird­head, set up in 2004, is an artist col­lec­tive made up of Song Tao and Ji Weiyu based in Shang­hai. Both were born in xin­cun, res­i­den­tial ar­eas erected in Shang­hai mostly from the 1950s to the 1980s. The two started their art ca­reers by pho­tograph­ing the dis­ap­pear­ing xin­cun dur­ing the city’s devel­op­ment. They em­pha­size the edit­ing process of their pho­tos by order­ing them care­fully in groups to con­struct new nar­ra­tives. Wel­come to Bird­head World Again is their 10th solo ex­hi­bi­tion, and sees their fo­cus broaden to scenes of daily life, both in and out­side of the city. The pair’s fas­ci­na­tion with tra­di­tional cul­ture is also re­vealed in the ex­hi­bi­tion, the space of which is split into three sec­tions like an an­cient Chi­nese yard.

Dur­ing the past few years, con­tem­po­rary so­ci­ety has en­tered a stage of mas­sive ac­cu­mu­la­tion of ob­jects. Phi­los­o­phy has long con­sid­ered ob­jects as a realm in­tri­cately con­nected with man. In con­junc­tion with the ex­hi­bi­tion, talks and lec­tures will be pre­sented. More­over, an in­ter­na­tional sym­po­sium will also be held dur­ing the show.

Dual Solo Ex­hi­bi­tions

Shang­hai Gallery of Art will host dual solo ex­hi­bi­tions by two Chi­nese fe­male artists Liu Yu­jia and Lai Jinna. Four video and photography works are fea­tured in Liu’s show ti­tled The Third Man, ex­am­in­ing ob­jects and the fields they be­long to. The artist man­ages to bring imag­i­na­tion, per­cep­tion and logic into play by re­sort­ing to the­atri­cal and movie lan­guage, prob­ing the in­ter­play among ob­jects, time and hu­man be­ings dur­ing the pro­gres­sion of an orig­i­nal story. Lai Jinna’s art­works in color pen­cils and ball­point made their de­but in a se­ries in 2010. Lai’s first solo ex­hi­bi­tion in Shang­hai, en­ti­tled Pre­sent­ing Na­ture, fea­tures her re­cent works and de­parts from her pre­vi­ous prac­tices. It can be seen as a re­view of the three stages of her jour­ney in the art world. Date: Un­til June 18, 10 am to 7 pm Venue: Shang­hai Gallery of Art Ad­dress: 3/F, 3 Zhong­shan­dongyi Road 3 3 Ad­mis­sion: Free Call 6321-5757 for de­tails Bro­ken Bones & Bruises

Bro­ken Bones & Bruises: An Oc­ca­sional Mess of Mov­ing Parts is the lat­est LED-in­fused ex­hi­bi­tion from the city’s art col­lec­tive is­land6. This new ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plores the fragility and dura­bil­ity of the hu­man body. The new­est se­ries of ex­clu­sive works on dis­play of­fer a snarky per­spec­tive on what it means to be alive in­side the glass house of hu­man mor­tal­ity. Vis­i­tors can look for­ward to an abun­dance of puls­ing diodes with orig­i­nal mu­sic from David Pop­pell spilling out of the col­lec­tive’s in­ti­mate Shang­hai Gar­den space at M50.

It is per­vaded by a sense of con­tin­u­a­tion and ex­ten­sion of ab­strac­tion, and chal­lenges the au­di­ence’s means of ap­pre­ci­a­tion through a new lan­guage.
