Capsule, a new gallery in the heart of Shanghai’s Former French Concession, announces its inaugural exhibition “When We Become Us”. The exhibition features eight international artists working across several mediums. Each artist and their respective works have been selected for the poetic nature in which they, at times share an affinity in intent and expression, while in other instances are clearly diametrically divergent. The artists include Alice Wang, Feng Chen, Yingmei Duan, Katarzyna Kozyra, Sarah Faux, Doron Langberg, Hai-Hsin Huang, and Pixy Liao. Collectively, the works invite us to investigate the question of how we, as viewers, approach art and what kind of catalysts are used to shape a sense of Self in relation to the Other. Consider what happens when the nature of our relationship to the work changes from a subjective to an objective reaction – is this the instant when We become Us with the artwork itself? Can this shift from subjectivity to objectivity turn our experience into something more meaningful?
