THE CONTEMPORARY ARTIST, ARCHITECT AND THEORIST RESEMBLE THE NIETZSCHEAN FIGURE OF THE DANCER ON THE ROPE. THE ONLY CRITERION OF THEIR SUCCESS IS THEIR ABILITY TO DANCE ON THE ROPE UNDER THE GAZE OF THE PUBLIC FOR A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF TIME. BORIS GROYS
INVISIBLE SHORE / MA HAIJIAO
DEC 21, 2018 – JAN 14, 2019
On December 21, at 7pm, the Zarya Air Workshop will celebrate the opening of “Invisible Shore,” an exhibition of photographs by Ma Haijiao (PRC), taken while the artist was in residence in Vladivostok. The exhibition will be on view until January 14, but to visit after the opening, you will need to first check in at the reception desk.
As the first Chinese artist to participate in the residency, Ma Haijiao reflects on the relationship between China and Russia, as it touches on both the history and present of Vladivostok. The two photographic series are based on the artist’s own impressions as he visited the city for the first time, serving as a kind of poetic interpretation of his experience.
