ShanghART’s first participation at Taipei Dangdai presents a selection of works with the theme “Collisions” from artists Li Shan, Lin Aojie, Melati Suryodarmo, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Boedi Widjaja, Wu Yiming, and Robert Zhao Renhui. The rapid advancement of technology, along with the pandemic and ongoing conflicts around the world, have intensified the collisions between humans and the world we live in. This in turn resulted in significant environmental and social repercussions that demand urgent attention. The exhibited artworks offer poignant insights into the clashes between humans and our environments, exploring these encounters and their impacts from multiple perspectives.

The presentation takes Li Shan’s central investigation as the focal point. A leading figure in Chinese contemporary art and a pioneer of Bio Art, Li Shan’s provocative artworks arise from his desire to steer away from the anthropological perspectives of seeing the world, and towards the view of equality of all beings and universal harmony. From his early conceptual drawings to later experiments with pumpkins and maize, Li Shan has been continuing his deep inquiry through Bio Art for more than twenty years. The dedicated space within the booth welcomes the audience to step into his mind and to consider alternative ways of understanding ‘life’.

Around the booth, Boedi Widjaja’s investigation into muons – a particle that come to us due to particles in the Earth's atmosphere colliding with cosmic rays – through experimental photographic techniques capture the invisible that are all around us. Quiet environments depicted through the paintings of Wu Yiming and photography works of Apichatpong Weerasethakul appear in sharp contrast against colourful and disorderly images digitally painted by Lin Aojie. Both styles of portrayal examine human activity within the world through different angles. Melati Suryodarmo contemplates the notions of distance, displacement, and of her connection to the world in her performance “24,901 Miles”, titled after the circumference of the earth.

Lastly, the images from Robert Zhao’s “A Guide to the Flora and Fauna of the World” documents the countless ways in which mankind is slowly but surely changing nature, inviting us to ponder upon our actions and the consequences on what we identify as nature. Similar questions are also raised in his latest work “Hybrid Zone” which explores the phenomenon of interbreeding through the hybrid of two species of blue magpies.

Through this thoughtfully curated presentation of significant works created by prominent artists of our times, we hope to draw our attention to our perspectives of the world, striving to raise questions about our place in the world and to rethink our relations to other life forms.
