'Parallel Universes: Parafacts And Parafictions' Opens in Shanghai!
The Artling proudly opened ‘Parallel Universes: Parafacts and Parafictions’ in Shanghai on 10 November. Curated by independent curator and former Associate Director of PHOTOFAIRS Shanghai Peipei Han. The exhibition is set within a former colonial building in the Jing’an District, that once served as the Police Headquarters in the 1910s. The 20th-century building was meticulously renovated by Shanghai architect-designers Neri & Hu, retaining a strong emphasis on the relationship between historical and contemporary architecture. The inclusion of contemporary art in this historic venue aims to bridge the three spheres of architecture, art and design, presenting a holistic approach towards how these elements come together. ‘Parallel Universes: Parafacts and Parafictions’ transforms the building’s colonial architecture into a platform that stages a heightened experience that brings the community together, exploring the dynamics between different genres and mediums. In understanding and reinterpreting the world around us, the participating artists present their visions through fictional readings of reality. The fine line that defines reality and fiction is ever more blurred. This confusion provides opportunities to critically examine the actual world and reconsider the potential of our present experience. This exhibition also questions – within our own narrow sense of what we deem real or unreal – the existence of other realities that allow for very different possibilities to exist. Fiction in one world may be a reality in another. This exciting exhibition is held at the Design Republic Commune and runs from 10 November to 9 January 2022.

Then Now Beyond: Exhibition Opening
The Artling proudly project-managed Then Now Beyond, an exhibition of limited edition art and design pieces by some of the leading figures in the fields of contemporary art and design, commissioned on the occasion of The Hour Glass' 40th Anniversary. The Artling worked to come up with an initial brief for the artists and designers, inviting them to explore and engage with differing perceptions of time. Then Now Beyond presents these findings with a series of commissioned objets d’art by American artist Daniel Arsham, Australian designer Marc Newson, Japanese design studio Nendo and Rotterdam-based Studio Wieki Somers, that seek to challenge our relationship with the past, the present and the future. The objects included in the exhibition were selected by a committee made up of Mr Michael Tay, Group Managing Director of The Hour Glass, British architect Sir David Adjaye OBE, and international watch specialist Mr Aurel Bacs. The exhibition opened in November 2019, and continues until January 2020. Click through for some images of the exhibition and the opening night!
