'Datumsoria' Group Show

Finished Ended on Fri Dec 30, 2016
Chronus Art Center
Bldg 18, 50 Moganshan Lu, near Aomen Lu


Featuring works by Liu Xiaodong, Carsten Nicolai, and Nam June Paik, Datumsoria is all digital delights, kicking off with a contemporary representation of Genghis Khan - complete with bicycle, diving helmet, a pile of television cases, and neon lights. Elsewhere, Liu Xiaodong's time-based work incorporates video camera footage from key locations in Shanghai, Beijing, and the artist’s home town. The piece incorporates three large-scale canvases, scaffolding and robotically-controlled paintbrushes. Last but not least, Carsten Nicolai’s installation offers an examination of perception on graphic structures that resemble punch cards of the early computing era. The show marks the space's first in a series by Art & Technology @ project, conceived and curated by Zhang Ga. Recommended.
