Record: You Are The Dust In The Universe
Editor's Description

XIME hosts the solo exhibition of artist Karu Shao on from 26th July to 19 September. Karu Shao is a contemporary artist with multicultural background. Born in Shanghai, Karu spent most of her childhood growing up in Japan & Switzerland. She studied painting and dramatic art at the University of Miami. Her artwork often breaks the traditional rules in art making. Her work often explores the theme & relationship between one‘s subconscious and one’s own ability. In her solo exhibition , Karu Shao raised a hypothesis that “ things that you can not see or touch may be the key of exploring the universe”. Cosmic Dust, is dust which exists in outer space, or has fallen on Earth. We live in a sensory world measured by small units and we trust our senses without much doubt. Exploring the unknown space becomes a big challenge for us. In this series of work, the artist transforms ordinary landscape into unique individual images through collage. This series of works are shown in different order and media in every exhibition, presenting these altered scenery in a different spatially combination every single time. The work explores the unrealness of the real world. It also re-examine the process of “cognitive-thinking-recording”.
