After her inclusion in the 2014 Whitney Biennial, Fu
’s transportive videos and installations have cropped up in museum and gallery exhibitions across the globe. For SP-Arte, Simon Preston presents a solo booth of the California-based artist’s work, which encompasses several of her most ambitious projects of the last five years. While the booth will debut a new and never-before-seen video, Untitled
(2016), we have our eye on an edition of Belle Captive I
, the very work that was projected onto the Whitney’s walls during the Biennial. The video, which spills across two screens, layers fragments of stock footage (women drinking water, children waving at the camera, lilies blossoming) over gauzy, pulsating gradients. The result is a mesmerizing, internet-age dreamscape, where advertisements and virtual identities mingle with escapism.
