Gao Yuan: The Omen, 26 Oct 2019 — 25 Dec 2019

Gao Yuan: The Omen

Capsule Shanghai, 1st Floor, Building 16, 275 Nong

The exhibition features the artist’s latest animation work titled “Cloud of the Unknown”, as well as a selection of paintings the artist has used as backgrounds in the short film.

After her experience with the movie “Lunar Dial”, Gao Yuan set her original paintings as the visual vocabulary and settings of the short film.
Finding inspirations and motifs from her personal experience, “Cloud of the Unknown” starts from a hypothesis, as well as a real sensation Gao Yuan experienced: “once it was different from ever before, when I woke up, the moment of falling into sleep still felt vivid, as if my whole body had evaporated in an instant.” Does our body still exist when we fall asleep? How do we reconcile the person known as “I” in our mind and dreams, with our body—our flesh and bone?
