This Image Is No More - Beijing

Wednesday, 30 June 2010

"Good TV", in collaboration with Vision Forum and the people of Wu Dao Ying Hu Tong in Beijing welcomes you to an art exhibition based on storytelling performed live.

"This image is no more"
Bejing - Wu Dao Ying Hu Tong
1 - 4 Jul 2010

The exhibition "This image is no more" has been conceived in collaboration between a group of Swedish artists and members of the Chinese community. The project looks for new forms of making and perceiving art, where the art as object has been replaced by the relations and processes surrounding it.

People who live and work in the Wu Dao Ying Hu Tong have been engaged to tell stories of images drawn from memories, dreams or visions. Meaning that the exhibition consists of images only materialized in the act of storytelling. The public will find these storytellers in their everyday settings at home or at work. On request each person/storyteller performs a monologue describing their specific image.

Welcome to opening reception will take place at "illy coffee/Cafe Confucius" on Thursday the 1st of July at 19.00 - 21.00 pm.

Adress: No. 25 Imperial College street, Dongcheng District, Beijing.

The exhibition takes place at 10 different sites within the Wu Dao Ying Hu Tong, Beijing:

Thursday 1 July, 20.00 - 22.00

Friday 2 July, 18.00 - 21.00

Saturday & Sunday, 3-4 July, 15.00 - 18.00

The Invisible Generation Shenzhen - October 23

Natasha Rosling - Performative Sculpture 1 (The Loft)

Natasha Rosling created a specially designed dress that she had lifted over her head with the help of an ingenious structure, displaying her naked, brightly red-coloured legs. She remained immobile in this position on a small stool for 90 minutes, drawing a lot of interest from the local community and stimulating their humour and creativity.

Per Hüttner – Deja-vu 1 (The Loft)

Per Hüttner – Deja-vu 1 (The Loft)

Working with four young local actors, Per Hüttner’s two performances both used the idea of confident men at the peak of their virility receiving a phone call from an older version of themselves, with the intention to give useful advice that appear to be ignored due to youthful over-confidence. In the first, the four bumped into one-another in the heat of Friday evening, but as the strangeness of the call became evident their enthusiasm quickly wore off and sparked introspection. What could have been a fun night out, fizzled out. The event was repeated seven times, every 15 minutes copying the logic of the déjà-vu.

Jon Phillips and Matt Hope – Soundsystem (The Loft)

Jon Phillips and Matt Hope have developed a series of specially designed sound systems that are open source and that allow sound artists to create cheap and effective ways to play and present their work. They speakers were used in a DJ-set where the heavy beats of hip-hop got entangled with a whole array of national anthems.

Neno Belchev – Bicycle, Suitcase Performance. (The Loft)

The artist has created a special box that was mounted on a traditional Chinese Tricycle, used for transporting material in the city. The box contained a hidden camera that was connected to a TV-monitor. The audience followed the bored expressions of the artist in his box and even though the cables between the two were clearly visible the audience expressed marvel and excitement when he finally exited from the box..
