been in england for about 10 days now.
spent a few days in london bumming around with wang wei who is doing a residency at gasworks. he's part of a group show called Slash Fiction that opens in the gasworks gallery April 4th.
then we went up to liverpool to help install wang wei's work in the "The Real Thing," an exhibition of Chinese contemporary art with a bizarre name. eighteen artists all together. if this is the real thing, then what was the other stuff? fake things? evidently, as my friend Pauline Yao is curating forged realities at U-Space in Beijing. the "fake show" opens in a few weeks on april 14.
now currently spending time in manchester with renny o'shea and richard gregory of quarantine. wang wei comes up here in a few days and we'll be exploring the city, meeting people and trying to see if we can maybe make something. seems like there are lots of possibilities- at first glance it seems that manchester could be about as wacky as beijing.
