PSA Col­lec­tion Se­ries – Li Shan

This event com­pre­hen­sively fo­cuses on Li Shan’s BioArt-themed projects, a first in China. Among the pieces on dis­play, two in­volve liv­ing or­gan­isms, while the re­main­ing are plans, sketches, draw­ings and doc­u­ments about his BioArt projects. The core think­ing be­hind Li’s work is about cre­at­ing con­di­tions for ran­dom ex­pres­sions, while gene mod­i­fi­ca­tion has be­come the dom­i­nant con­trol method for the con­di­tion of cre­ation. The artist is hop­ing to ex­ceed the bound­aries of art, and evoke a large-scale dis­cus­sion on top­ics from bio-art to hu­man des­tiny. Rather than pro­vid­ing a new ap­proach for us to un­der­stand art, his new genre is a test for hu­man thoughts and at­ti­tudes. One of China’s con­tem­po­rary artists, Li Shan has also been known as the pi­o­neer of BioArt. Gong Yan is the cu­ra­tor of the ex­hi­bi­tion, di­rec­tor of Power Sta­tion of Art.
