Shanghai Chicago

An international Artist exchange with artists from Shanghai and Chicago

Distance is a project, a metric and cultural, symbolic distance that is used to create an image which invites us to come together in the city of Hamburg. This art and cultural exchange leads both artists to dialogue with themselves and with the other in a strange and unfamiliar place. Hamburg, FRISE is to be seen as a medium, a portal of transmission.

Distance brings to matter a syntax between conversation and constellation. Bringing together different perceptions in one dialectic of mutual recognition-knowing and recognizing one self. They come from different nations and artistic contexts. They will negotiate and ponder, individually and collaboratively.

Gwyneth Anderson is a Chicago-based artist whose projects explore perception and phenomena of movement, primarily working with animation and installation. Her work for Distance will focus on the distance between the mind and physical, emotional experience.

Li Huihui is an artist from Shanghai. Her work focuses on lost civilizations and ruins. She uses paint, printmaking and sound to experiment with installations inspired by archaeology and deconstruction. Her work for Distance deals with the alienation of everyday life and the deterioration of things.

The choice of artist is to occur in cooperation with partners in USA and China.
