CCTV show provokes thought
Updated: 2011-12-16 15:58
In the exhibition of Zhang Qing, monitors from CCTV - closed-circuit television, that is, not China Central Television - open above and below the viewers. These images, real or imaginary, deliberate or unintended, all provoke thought. The artworks to be exhibited include video installations, conceptual installations and the single-screen video Learn by Tom Smith, completed during the Glenfiddich Artists in Residence Program. After a trip to a Scotch whisky factory, Zhang Qing renders with journalistic irony a worker against the background of Western capitalist society that displays the conflicts between cultures in a familiar language.
