Capsule Shanghai will be presenting Miranda Fengyuan Zhang’s latest solo exhibition 'A World Without Us', which will run from 16 January to 27 February. The exhibition comprises her textile works made of cotton and wool, and a large-scale textile installation.

Working formally and freely within the mediums of weaving and knitting, the Shanghai-born New York-based artist introspects inner worlds free of human traces. Zhang's textile creations embraces the material’s tension between familiar references and modernity, evoking the loss of a former state of existence and welcoming the recomposition of a new world.

The subject matter in Zhang’s works are initially disorienting, but are imbued with a familiar feel. From semi-abstract gardens and vaguely concrete landscapes to animal silhouettes and colourful mountains, her works celebrate the mythology of life and nature. Vibrating at the borders of abstraction and representation, natural phenomena such as cultivated fields, erupting volcanoes, and icebergs are intimately depicted in the constraint of weaving. While weaving sets rigid striated indexes, knitting offers the artist freedom in manipulating the material to her demands, presenting a structure for material to clash.

About The Gallery

Established in late 2016, Capsule Shanghai is based in Shanghai’s central Xuhui District. Situated on the first floor of a picturesque 1930s garden house in the idyllic greenery of the former French Concession, the gallery works primarily with emerging artists who push the boundaries of contemporary art. The gallery’s special focus is on artists who have personally and professionally migrated between regions, creating unique trans-national and trans-regional links.

From its inception, Capsule Shanghai sought to work with artists from China or artists who have established a professional foothold in the country. The gallery continues to work with emerging contemporary artists destined for the international scene, often presenting their work for the first time in China and abroad, such as Alice Wang, Gao Yuan, Leelee Chan, Feng Chen, Huang Hai-Hsin, Sarah Faux, Ivy Haldeman, Maya Kramer, Cai Zebin, Wang Haiyang and Douglas Rieger. 

The gallery participates in major international fairs such as Artissima, Turin; Liste, Basel; Paris Internationale, Paris; Frieze New York, NY; Art Basel in Hong Kong; and West Bund Art & Design, Shanghai.


Exhibition Dates: 16 January - 27 February 2021
Address: Capsule Shanghai, 1st Floor, Building 16, Anfu Lu 275, Nong, Xuhui District, Shanghai
Opening Times: Tues - Sat: 10am - 6pm
