LEO XU PROJECTS is pleased to announce its curatorial collaboration and off-site projects within Michael Lin’s solo exhibition “Model Home” at Rockbund Art Museum in Shanghai. Gallery artist Cheng Ran is commissioned to produce a body of videos for the show and a sound project is curated by Leo Xu to extend the exhibition into a subtle soundscape.
Titled “Dark Red (The Deepest Red)”, Cheng Ran’s ambitious ten-channel video installation brings together video documentation of the production of Michael Lin’s “Model Home” and footages on the architectural environment and people involved. The ten videos are scattered within six floors of the entire museum space and presented in various forms.
The sound project includes a sound-and-music album and a commissioned new ambient sound installation by Shanghai-based artist Lou Nanli that takes up each gallery space. The album contains a multimedia application—a collaboration between Shanghai-based media artist Xu Wenkai (aka. aaajiao) and Lou Nanli—and a compilation of music and songs by musicians and artists reflecting on living experience in Shanghai.
As part of the exhibition’s program, Shanghai-based Dutch artist Gabriel Lester will be giving a talk on the time and space relationship. The talk takes place on March 16, 7pm at the Rockbund Art Museum. The talk will be delivered in English with a Chinese translation.
