Infection + transformation in Guan Xiao’s Living Sci-Fi, under the red stars at Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler, Apr 28 – Jul 1

, 27 April 2017

Guan Xiao is presenting solo exhibition Living Sci-Fi, under the red stars at Berlin’s Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler, opening April 28 and running to July 1.

The Beijing-based artist will present a series of new sculptures looking at the urban environment and the increased change on our habitat by economic and technological development. There will also be a new video ‘Dengue Dengue Dengue’ which was made for exhibition A Temporary Futures Institute at Antwerp’s M HKA, which also opens on April 28.

The three-channel film looks at how “habits contaminate our behavior, spreading around the world like an infectious disease. The infection is a transformation happening inside of us; the work calls for a retreat from these dynamics in order to learn the possibilities of breaking habits.”

See the Kraupa-Tuskany Zeidler website for details.**
