Artist collective Field Recordings (Zixuan Guo, Li Xiaofei, Tu Rapana Neill, Jim Speers and Clinton Watkins) work with a shared interest in the social geography of contemporary Shanghai.
The consistent undercurrent here is water - the Suzhou and Chang Jiang Rivers - as a physical, political and economic barrier that exists between those making a living on the rivers, and the skyscrapers that represent the proliferation of wealth in the city. The exhibition includes new video works, produced collaboratively, and a soundscape composed for the space.
