  • Testimony for the Future | 北丘当代美术馆

    testimony for the future 2024.3.30-2024.6.30 The concept of the exhibition is inspired by the difference between the space of Beiqiu Museum ofContemporary Art and that of the “White Box”. As an artistic space transformed from an air-raidshelter, the art museum retains the previous structural characteristics and sense of historical relicsas well as its geographic environment that is inseparable from the Jilongshan Mountain. The spaceof the "air-raid shelter" is treated as a place where Gao Lei and Li Nu store and exchange theirworks. One day, far in the future, upon looking back, the door of the “shelter” would be opened,displaying testimony for the collective memory and reflection of the two intersecting individuallives as well as of the present era.

In terms of their respective methodologies, Gao Lei's expression hasthe constant appearance of rational thinking, while Li Nu constantly shifts between lightness andheaviness, silence and explosion. Their works are both witnesses to reality and metaphysicalinquiries. Compared with the local conceptual artists of the previous generation, Gao Lei and Li Nuavoid excessively-symbolic production and respond to the common circumstances by focusing moreon art itself. Just Imagine The exhibition, for the first time, will be presented in both the main gallery and the tunnel sub-spaceof Beiqiu Museum of Contemporary Art.
