'Parallel Universes: Parafacts And Parafictions': Exhibition Installation Images
The Artling proudly opened its latest exhibition ‘Parallel Universes: Parafacts and Parafictions’ in Shanghai on 10 November. ‘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.
The full artist lineup includes Aspartime, Carlos Sebastia and Jane Pickersgill, Ce Jian, Chen Xiaoyi, Chen Zhe, Gao Lei, Hu Weiyi, Joey Xia, John Monteith, Li Jinghu, Li Tao, Pu Yingwei, Ren Bo, Yang Guangnan, and Zhang Miao.
This exhibition is held at the Design Republic Commune and will be on from 10 November to 9 January 2022.
