TIAN XIAOLEI
Overload

JUNE 9 to AUGUST 5

OVERLOAD is pure sensory excess where one encounters an ultra-mechanized, posthuman world filled with digital gifs, photographic holograms, archival digital prints, digital animated video, 3D printed sculptures, and a Virtual Reality (VR) installation.

“Digital media is the carrier of my creation. I am interested in the uncertainty of the rapid iteration in this era and in the relationship between life, science, technology, and the future evolution of this new species as produced by this hybrid age. I use the artist’s perspective to create future world specimens that blend history, religion, science, technology, and the body to create a new artistic experience.” (TIAN XIAOLEI)

Having already shown in Australia, Italy, Germany, Russia, Switzerland, and the United States, as well as in prominent galleries all across China, KATZMAN CONTEMPORARY is honoured to be hosting TIAN XIAOLEI’S Canadian premiere exhibition curated by YAN ZHOU.
