ShanghART Beijing is pleased to announce Birdhead solo exhibition Welcome to Birdhead World Again-Beijing 2012 on 1st September 2012.
It being the first solo exhibition of Birdhead in Beijing, more than 200 photos will be featured this time. It also marks the first full display of the set in China after the 54th Venice Art Biennale ILLUMInations in 2011.
Founded in 2004 as a photographic collective, Birdhead and their artworks have been given wide attentions. By photographing which usually functions to record, the two members, SONG Tao and JI Weiyu, intend more to assist memorisation in a faithful manner. For some, they are perhaps simply colourful or B&W photos, while for the artists, it links together their entire world. Maybe “the world” does not belong to you but they welcome your arrival.
JI Weiyu (1980) and SONG Tao (1979) were both born in Shanghai, where they also reside and work today. The artists graduated from the Shanghai Arts and Crafts School in 2000. Recent exhibitions include: Birdhead: New Village, EX3 Centro per l’arte Contemporanea Firenze, Florence, Italy (2011); Artist File 2011 The NACT Annual Show of Contemporary Art , National Art Center, Tokyo, Japan (2011); The 54th Venice Biennale——ILLUMInations, Venice, Italy (2011); China Power Station - part 4, Pinacoteca Agnelli, Torino, Italy (2010); The World of Other’s: A Contemporary Art Exhibition, Museum of Contemporary Art, Shanghai (2008); China Power Station II, Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, Oslo, Norway (2007).
