in collaboration with a collateral event
Jan, Nicola Angermann
Over a period of two weeks more than 20 artists coming from China, France, Germany and the USA are inserting their works and performances throughout Xinhua Market, a local Shanghai market, with the BCP space serving as info station. The mostly conceptual works range from record and garment sales (Rutherford Chang, Rainer Ganahl), sound installations (Roland Lauth, Jennifer Oiukwu), objects, paintings, drawings, stickers (Jan, Nicola Angermann), videos, photos and performances to the generation of electricity from fruits (Victor Remere), faking corporate IDs (Kenneth Dow, Florian Model) and all kind of give-aways (Manon Soupizon) which will render shopping a surprising experience. This was just to name a few things with a few names that expect you at this marvelous market that also risks to disappear for redevelopment in the soon future since high rise buildings are moving in already left and right.
The works you find in existing boutiques will encourage you to become a flaneur whose gaze glides across merchandizes and people alike to scan for beauty, excitements and great art in unexpected ways.
The project can be seen from Tuesday, December 3rd to Sunday, December 15th throughout the regular Shanghai market hours (7 am – 8 pm)
Saturday, December 7th between from 2 - 4 pm at BCP, Xinhua Market Shanghai.
December 10th, 6 - 9 pm, at BANK MAB Society
