Our recently commissioned work by Gordon Cheung is currently premiering as part of Cheung’s solo exhibition Tears of Paradise at Edel Assanti, London.
Tears of Paradise is the latest in a series in which Cheung witnesses and interprets the emergence of China as a twenty first century global superpower, framing current events in the context of the “Century of Humiliation” and the opium wars.
The exhibition draws together three years of research and creation; addressing the emerging science fiction realities surrounding China’s vast infrastructural expansion – from dystopic surveillance societies to the formation of unfathomable megalopolises of 130 million citizens via the fusion of what are already the world’s largest cities.
Event: Wednesday 19 February from 7pm
Gordon Cheung will be in conversation with Mark Rappolt, Editor-in-Chief of ArtReview, who will be discussing the themes behind the show.
