In 90s, there was little chance for the artists to show works in Shanghai. In 1998, the Germany culture console brought up an idea when he was taking shower that to display artworks in the showcase on the wall of Germany consulate. As small as the showcase, though, it faced the street which could be regarded as an unlimited space, so that he named it Un/Limited Space. It provided the artists with a place to show their works, and made it possible for the people who were waiting for the visa in front of the consulate and the passers-by to see art as well. Zhou Tiehai is the third artist who was invited to make an exhibition in this space. He covered up the showcase with a set of shower, saying “perhaps you could also have the Un/Limited ideas when you are taking shower".
