On June 16 Qi Mu Space is to present “ORION”, GAO Weigang’s first solo at the space. The exhibition will last until August 19.
This exhibition will unveil a thrilling long journey that begins at Qi Mu Space and ends at β, Orion’s primary component. For this dramatic trip, the artist went out of his way to collect ten musts for the journey, which are to be presented at the exhibition. After complicated data working, the artist shares with the audience stories and scenes along the trip, therefore adding something light to the definitely dull journey.
With the full-scale inflow of science fiction film and TV programs from Europe and America, GAO experienced slight changes in his interest as well. By means of these seemingly odd gods and spirits that are as a matter of fact full of wisdom, we find some vague traces of the unfocused and destandardized multiple worlds. The helpless darkness takes away from us reasonable references. Probably only at the panic moment can we really be aware of what we are in a world that we consider subjective.
GAO Weigang, born in Heilongjiang Province in 1976, is a self-instructed artist based in Beijing.
