Things from the gallery warehouse
ShanghART Gallery is pleased to present “Things from the gallery warehouse”.
The show will exhibit several large-scaled installation works stored in the warehouse of ShanghART gallery in series. For years, ShanghART Gallery provide platforms of exhibitions for outstanding artists. It is worth mentioning that considerable unfamiliar works are stored in the gallery warehouse—the rear base of exhibition spaces. As the first show of “Things from the gallery warehouse” exhibition (rest shows will be exhibited successively), three large installation works are selected. Strangeness, generated by space and volume, uncovers a quite and unknown ego of a gallery.
Brief intro for a part of selected works:
Shao Yi, Exposure: buckets, installation
Shao Yi’s work ‘Exposure’ uses different sized iron drums as carriers of pin-hole imagine cameras and the photo paper becomes directly the exposed object. In this series of works, the only principal how artist choice the subject is ’anything around me that can be exposed for ages ’.This is revolt against artist himself and naturally occurring phenomenon.
