Venice - Official Collateral Event

3x3x6

Palazzo delle Prigioni

11 May 201924 Nov 2019

Promoter: Taipei Fine Arts Museum of Taiwan
Artist: Shu Lea Cheang

“3x3x6” explores the themes of imprisonment and surveillance. With the venue’s former function in mind, Cheang has named the artwork “3x3x6” in reference to the idea of a 9-square-metre prison cell monitored by 6 cameras. Here she creates an immersive, multidimensional installation, turning the space into a total surveillance apparatus. Cheang has also developed short films about 10 cases of subjects imprisoned or ostracised for reasons connected to their gender, sexuality or race. “3x3x6”stimulates reflection on different technologies used to confine and control society, and also questions the legal and visual regimes that have formed sexual and gender norms over time.
