Timur Si-Qin – Recent Horizons

Growing up in a multi-cultural environment has helped inform Si-Qin’s unique sensitivity to materials, in addition to his interest in contemporary discourses in philosophy and science. For Recent Horizons, the artist will show sculptural LED panels playing edited footage, most of which the artist took on his smartphone. Each of the videos will be branded by PEACE, a visual identity consisting of a PEACE slogan and a redesigned Taoist Taiji symbol––which the artist has used on several occasions in recent years.

Cyprien Gaillard – Where Nature Runs Riot

Where Nature Runs Riot is centered around a new film created by Gaillard over the past three years. Shot on location in Berlin, Cleveland, and Los Angeles, the artist reflects upon the dis- and relocation of landmarks and vegetation, misguided urban planning and cultural vandalism, and the anachronisms that constitute the world around us.
