On Struggling to Remain Present When You Want to Disappear
Shanghai, 8 April – 10 June 2018
The exhibition On Struggling to Remain Present When You Want to Disappear, brings together immersive video and sound installations as well as photographs. Through immersive video and sound installations as well as photographs, the exhibition examines the boundaries where the tangible, the imagined, and the virtual become permeable, and the porousness of these frontiers allows players to break out of traditional societal norms to explore new ways of dealing with their own realities. Forensic Architecture’s 77sqm_9:26min (2017) makes the forensic techniques of investigation and digital reconstruction of a murder public.
Culminating the curatorial fellowship of Wang Dan at KADIST San Francisco, the exhibition was a collaboration between OCAT (Shanghai), the Central Academy of Fine Arts (Beijing), and KADIST.
