Flash BriefingsWhat: Cao Fei: Blueprints Exhibition opens tomorrow (4 August)
Where: Serpentine Galleries
This project at the Serpentine Galleries is Cao Fei’s first large-scale institutional solo exhibition in the UK. She has several pieces in New York’s Guggenheim.
Cao Fei‘s is a multimedia artist, predominantly using video. Her work is underpinned by an ongoing exploration of virtuality, how it has radically altered our perception of self and changed the way we understand reality.
This slippage between the physical and the virtual is always present in her work; from the utopic and dystopic potentials of our modern-day cities, the escapism of users via the virtual platform, Second Life, to the alienating effects of mechanised labour in China, Cao Fei often addresses these far-reaching topics through deadpan humour and the creation of surreal encounters.
Although each of Cao Fei‘s worlds appear to teeter on the edge of apocalyptic uncertainty, her characters navigate these complex and chaotic realities with vigour and agency, harnessing the unique possibilities of technology in order to shape a collective future.
