Pleased to share Wang Wei’s upcoming presentation in the Second Yinchuan Biennale ‘Starting from the Desert. Ecologies on the Edge’. This exhibition seeks to respond to contemporary urgencies by adopting an “archaeological method.” On view is Wang Wei’s ‘Natural History 6’ (2013). With newly commissioned works alongside ancient artistic relics from public museums and private collections, the Second Yinchuan Biennale has selected 90 participating artists from over thirty regions, paying particular attention to the western borders of China (from Mongolia to Central and Southeast Asia) in a way that is consistent with the exhibition’s geo-political, investigative methods.
