Delighted to share Tao Hui’s presentation in the group exhibition, ’Embodied Mirror: Performances in Chinese Video Art’ at New Century Art Foundation (NCAF). This exhibition explores the intimate exchange between video art and performance in the history of Chinese contemporary art. ‘Embodied Mirror’ points to the fact that video art does not necessarily provide the “stage” for performance, but a “mirror” or “exit” to access the world. It does not necessarily emancipate the body or to isolate it from the confines of social and historical discourses, but provides new strategic device or decoder. On view is Tao Hui’s ‘Talk About Body’ (2013).
