Nadim Abbas: Chimera @ Antenna Space
Nadim Abbas’ science fiction inspired work often constructs spatial situations that double as visual puns. In this play on the language of forms, the deployment of literature or visually presented text is mingled with scientific and mathematical methodologies. Mundane and familiar objects are also inserted into these settings, hinting at ways in which the speculative imagination can manifest itself in our everyday surroundings.
🕒 Until Jan. 1, 10:30am – 5.30pm
📍 50 Moganshan Road // 莫干山路50号
