INFINITE by Liu Chang, Miao Jing & Gan Jian
Private View: Thursday 25 June, 6-8 pm
Exhibiting in the downstairs gallery, INFINITE (2014) is an immersive video installation by Liu Chang and Miao Jing, with a soundtrack by Gan Jian. Two large-scale projections span the corner of the room in a fast-paced sequencing of geometric shapes and synthesised sounds. Influenced by Sol Lewitt’s wall drawings and ‘Open Cube’ series, the artists use the visual possibilities afforded by mathematics to reconfigure and animate the planes of the gallery space. Sound and image come together in a mesmerising homage to the cube and the endless potential permutations of cubic geometries.
