Beijing - Exhibition

Doug Aitken

Faurschou Foundation Beijing

23 Mar 201904 Aug 2019

Faurschou Foundation hosts the first solo show in China by the American artist Doug Aitken.

In his practice, Aitken mixes different mediums, integrating film, sound, photography, sculpture, performance, happenings, and site-specific installations. For this exhibition he presents three installations including the video work “New Era“. The exhibition aims to construct a narrative of today’s digital contemporary landscape and make the viewer interacting with the surrogates the artist created.

Aitken’s body of artwork takes the viewer into a different world, which explores ideas and takes you places that language cannot fully articulate. Through image, forms, and sound, the artworks conceptualize the idea of a current world that is completely kinetic and synchronized, yet at other times a landscape that’s vastly isolating.
