Time: 6 – 8pm
Venue: MediaCityUK, University of Salford, Salford, M50 2HE
Organised with the Centre for Chinese Contemporary Art, this experimental live event by artist Shen Xin explores the inclusiveness and exclusiveness of individual and collective understandings of origin through a collaboration of art, science and performance. A new commission, the performance will present three UK based storytellers morphed into hand-drawn abstract animations to deliver scripted passages about their origins and DNA.
Shen Xin was born in Chengdu, China and currently lives and works in London. Foregrounded by moving image work, Shen’s practice concerns the social position of the artist, and engages recently with re-instrumentalising technique, judgement, power and morality.
