The National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne is to present an exhibition of work by Wang Gongxin between 11 April and 8 September.
The event is to show three large-scale, immersive video works by the Chinese artist. His pieces explore political and social issues, as well as notions of history and tradition in a China which is experiencing massive economic growth. Often humorously subverting the visitor’s expectations of ordinary situations, the artist aims to transfigure their view of the world.
Wang Gongxin was born in Beijing in 1960. Training initially as an oil painter, he has emerged as one of the major forces in Chinese video art – which is still in its first generation of practising artists.
A collaborative exhibition of video and sound works dubbed “In Perpetual Motion” commences tomorrow at the First Floor Gallery. Being hosted by Darlington Muyengwa and Thomas Muziyirwa the exhibition is expected to draw huge numbers and will run until April 28.
Gallery marketing director Marcus Gora said the gallery aims to introduce something new in the arts industry to turn away from the usual style of exhibition.
"New media like video art does not have a high profile in Zimbabwe with most emerging contemporary artists still working squarely on traditional media like painting, printing, sculpture and mixed media," he said.
Gora also said some artistes do not prefer this kind of art because it is expensive and difficult to handle.
"Most times video is seen as an expensive and difficult medium, requiring cameras, computers and training in editing software.
Video art can also be difficult to explain to audiences who are used to see and buy objects to put on their walls or stands,” he said.
Over the past 20 years, video has become a crucial part of visual art as artists try to create experiences that reflect powerfully contemporary reality and use contemporary tools to do so.
**PULSE – An Evening of Electronic Music and Video Art** In traditional Tibetan medicine, pulse reading is a complex form of diagnosis which requires physicians to listen deeply to the sound waves and vibrations of one’s heartbeat. In collaboration with Warper Party, The Rubin Museum presents a museum-wide multi-media event, PULSE, which invites electronic musicians and video artists to listen deeply and explore their own beats through inspiration from the new exhibition, Bodies in Balance: The Art of Tibetan Medicine.
