Out of the Fence 护栏

In order to order population, fences are showing up massively on the streets and sideways of Beijing. It appears almost lunatic. Lunacy of constructing of structuring of regulating. Navigating the masses. Are we inside or outside the zoo gates?

Representing an enclosure of a piece of land in the West, fences in China regulate the masses and guide the people. Crowd coping seems only necessary in exceptional cases in the West – it is the daily card in China. Are fences restraints, borders, barriers? Do they offer security or seclusion or confrontation, are they possibly conquerable? How do we live inside them?



Connected in Parallel 并联

How do we find, create and use the personal space inside the given and limited aisles? Our three artists are guided by all kind of fences on their ways, but they are also connected by fences and at the same time divided – connected in parallel. Inside these fences, they have their personal on and off buttons, with which they can switch and witch how they like. In this exhibition they are showing us their own paths …
