Chris­tian Boltan­ski: Stor­age Mem­ory

Through July 8, the Power Sta­tion of Art will host Stor­age Mem­ory, China’s first ma­jor solo ex­hi­bi­tion of ac­claimed French artist Chris­tian Boltan­ski. Born in 1944 and widely con­sid­ered a key fig­ure in the post-WWII art scene in Europe, Boltan­ski has ex­erted pro­found im­pact on the devel­op­ment of con­tem­po­rary art from Europe to Asia. He was a con­tribut­ing artist to the French pav­il­ion dur­ing the Venice Bi­en­nale in 2011. Ac­cord­ing to the artist, while in­di­vid­ual mem­o­ries prove to be frag­ile, they are filled with truth­ful yet unique val­ues, mak­ing it the rea­son why he of­ten chooses daily items as the main cre­ative el­e­ments in con­struct­ing an ar­chive of hu­man­ity. A 10-ton pile of clothes, hun­dreds of pic­tures of in­fant and elderly faces, as well as the echoes of thou­sands of heart­beats will be on dis­play at PSA. This ad was based on the in­tro­duc­tion posted on the web­site of the mu­seum.

Ran­dom International: Ev­ery­thing & Noth­ing

Yuz Mu­seum Shang­hai presents “Ev­ery­thing & Noth­ing,” Ran­dom International’s first solo ex­hi­bi­tion in Asia. The ex­hi­bi­tion en­com­passes new works along­side es­tab­lished pieces of piv­otal sig­nif­i­cance within the artists’ prac­tice. The ex­hib­ited works con­sider ideas of sim­u­la­tion, de­ci­sion­mak­ing, and automation in an im­me­di­ate and sen­sory way. A Lon­don-based, multi-dis­ci­plinary col­lec­tive, Ran­dom International ex­plores the hu­man con­di­tion in an in­creas­ingly mech­a­nised world through emo­tional yet phys­i­cally in­tense ex­pe­ri­ences. The artists aim to pro­to­type pos­si­ble be­hav­ioral en­vi­ron­ments by ex­per­i­ment­ing with dif­fer­ent no­tions of con­scious­ness, per­cep­tion, and in­stinct. The ex­hi­bi­tion con­tin­ues this path of in­quiry; each work gen­er­ates its own en­vi­ron­ment, to which visi­tors are in­vited to re­spond on their own terms. Ran­dom International strives to “in­vite visi­tors to re-ex­pe­ri­ence and re-ex­am­ine the phys­i­cal spa­ces that rep­re­sent our re­la­tion­ship with tech­nol­ogy. These spa­ces re­late to both lived and spec­u­la­tive per­cep­tions of an in­creas­ingly automated en­vi­ron­ment, and how nat­u­ral phe­nom­ena and hu­man be­hav­ior can shape the world.” This ad was based on the in­tro­duc­tion posted on the web­site of the mu­seum.

Le­an­dro Er­lich: Con­struc­tion of Re­al­ity

A solo ex­hi­bi­tion by Ar­gen­tine artist Le­an­dro Er­lich brings to­gether over 30 art­works cov­er­ing his large-scale in­ter­ac­tive in­stal­la­tions, zin­stal­la­tions, and pho­tog­ra­phy, in­clud­ing 13 mon­u­men­tal in­ter­ac­tive in­stal­la­tions that of­fer the au­di­ences un­canny ex­pe­ri­ences via op­ti­cal il­lu­sions. By trans­form­ing the ar­chi­tec­tural spa­ces through jar­ring re­flec­tions and fas­ci­nat­ing labyrinths that dis­rupt the view­ers’ sense of bal­ance and ori­en­ta­tion, the artist in­vites us to ques­tion our nor­mal per­cep­tion of ev­ery­day ex­pe­ri­ence. This ex­hi­bi­tion un­folds the complex du­al­ity that char­ac­ter­izes Er­lich’s artis­tic ap­proach: by way of in­ves­ti­gat­ing the ephemeral, il­lu­sive as­pect of the vis­ual world, he recre­ates or even re­verses the given logic of ar­chi­tec­tural space. For this solo show Er­lich will present the most re­cent ver­sion of his se­ries Re­flec­tive Op­ti­cal Il­lu­sion Build­ing, a new in­ter­ac­tive installation in res­o­nance with the his­tor­i­cal and cultural land­scape of Shang­hai. Trained as an ar­chi­tect, Er­lich is known for his ex­trav­a­gant imag­i­na­tion and unique ma­nip­u­la­tions of mir­rors, pro­jec­tions, and ar­chi­tec­tural spa­ces with which he recre­ates and rep­re­sents re­al­ity in sur­real ways.

Betty Wood­man’s first Asian ex­hi­bi­tion and Zhao Yang’s ex­hi­bi­tion

Chi K11 art mu­seum in Shang­hai will si­mul­ta­ne­ously present House and Uni­verse, the first solo ex­hi­bi­tion in Asia for renowned Amer­i­can artist Betty Wood­man (1930-2018), and , the first solo mu­seum ex­hi­bi­tion in Chi­nese main­land for Chi­nese artist Zhao Yang. This dual ex­hi­bi­tion features the works of two artists of dif­fer­ent gen­ders, back­grounds, ge­ogra­phies and tra­di­tions, cre­at­ing a di­a­logue on the theme of “body” and “ges­tures” and the spa­ces in which they dwell. They hope to il­lu­mi­nate the cre­ative de­vel­op­men­tal paths of these two artists and place in full view the ex­per­i­ments in con­tem­po­rary art they have con­ducted us­ing tra­di­tional artis­tic medi­ums. Un­der the di­rec­tion of Adrian Cheng, a cultural en­tre­pre­neur and founder of K11 and K11 Art Foun­da­tion (KAF), this ex­hi­bi­tion will in­cor­po­rate K11’s in­de­pen­dently de­vel­oped in­ter­ac­tive “smart art” model to bring a new type of ex­hi­bi­tion ex­pe­ri­ence to the pub­lic. The artist’s first Asian ex­hi­bi­tion will put on dis­play a va­ri­ety of Wood­man’s mixed me­dia works from the past decade, in­clud­ing sculp­tures, trip­tych vases, large in­stal­la­tions and can­vas pieces.

At the time, the flour­ish of “La Belle Epoque” (The Twi­light of the 19th Cen­tury) re­mained. Mean­while, a new world was born from the ashes of war, in which mod­ern art move­ments burst out and various avant-garde arts emerged. These at­tracted artists from all over the world. Chi­nese artists flowed to the West af­ter 1911, open­ing up a pe­riod with the most fre­quent ex­changes be­tween Chi­nese and Western cul­ture. This ex­hi­bi­tion se­lects the most “po­etic” works of the great artists who flowed to the West dur­ing this pe­riod. They had a back­ground in Chi­nese clas­si­cal cul­ture and ded­i­cated them­selves to Western clas­si­cal art, im­pres­sion­ism and fau­vism af­ter go­ing West. In the process of learn­ing Western art and cul­ture, these strangers re­flected and made the once-in­vis­i­ble col­li­sion be­tween Eastern and Western cul­tures vis­i­ble.
