📍 66 Jiangning Road // 江宁路66号
Power by Wang Man @ LIAN Contemporary Art Space
Human relationships are at the very foundation of Wang Man’s work. This mode of creative thinking appears to question the “emotional nature” of commercialism—the warmth of advertisements seen on TV. With the fervent expressions in the eyes of those advertising these products, they add “natural” value to the products in which they are marketing. This widespread phenomenon infiltrates the realm of personal feelings, arousing vigilance to an even greater degree. Through his new series of work, he forms a well-developed thread through the exhibition. Thus, “Foreworld” this bold and grand phrase appropriately titles the exhibition.
🕒 Until Jan 20, 2017

LIKE ME by Lin Ke @ BANK
BANK is pleased to announce the opening of “Like Me”, the gallery’s first solo show of Beijing-based artist, Lin Ke. This exhibition continues the artists’ long-term interest in the behavioral science of our computer age by turning himself into his own guinea pig. Having converted his laptop into a studio, Lin mines the mundane actions of software operations and Internet surfing as the fodder and form of his art. As we increasingly experience life mediated by computing devices, Lin Ke helps define the boundaries of a growing reality gap.
