Also this week we show you works made by one of the new Chinese artists Zhao Bo is from Chongqing, Sichuan province in south-central China. Zhao Bo has captured this life on the streets – the clash of communist and capitalist, east and west, the ridiculous, the sly, the ludicrous and the overwhelming feeling that everyone is on the make.
The video and photo installation Relax by Ralph Kämena. The starting point of Relax is the utopian lay-out of a Vinex district (i.e. a new housing estate on the outskirts of a town): the idea that an environment could be invented on a drawing board. Relax is a work in progress, in which the artificiality of the Vinex architecture will be connected with the intimacy of homely interiors in a lyrical way.
Last week we already announced the first video of a serie from Valentina Nisi. The Media Portrait of the Liberties concerns the development, production, and interactive delivery of multiple short stories about the Dublin Liberties community.
The famous filmscene and song of Gene Kelly has been translated by Peter William Holden into an installation/ballet. Autogene is made of 8 umbrellas in circle which dance to the sound Singin’ In the Rain.
