M97 is pleased to present And All The Sounds Are Still, an exhibition of new work by Hangzhou-based mixed media artist Shao Wenhuan. The exhibition opens on September 6 and will run through October 25, 2015. An opening reception with the artist will be held on Sunday September 6 from 2:00 to 5:00 PM at M97 Gallery [97 Moganshan Road 2nd Floor]. This is the artist’s first exhibition at M97.
Spanning the entire gallery space, Shan Wenhuan’s "And All The Sounds Are Still" exhibition features new painting and photographic works on canvas and silk, as well as small installation and video works. In this now post-analog era where the ubiquity of images and photography makes us question the uniqueness of photography, the viewer is forced to reassess and reevaluate what it is that we consider a photograph or photographic art. The mixed media artworks of Shao Wenhuan address this continuing dialogue head on with both an embracement and subversion of the core elements of what most consider “photographic”. Shao’s artworks would argue, it seems, that the very delicate, controlled nature of what we consider a photograph is absurd in this post-analog age.
