Fantasmagoria of Chongqing
Fantasmagoria of Chongqing was developed in the frame of a five-week Artist-in-Residence at Art Space Organhaus and was exhibited at Art Space Organhaus in Chongqing from 22.03. till 28.03.2013. The project is documented by a publication.
Fantasmagoria of Chongqing quest for the genesis of the state of mind, the modern mythologies and most of all the phantasmagories that inhabit the young megacity Chongqing in south-west China.
Chinese cities are the new epicenters of urbanization revolution, places where the unthinkable exists. This extravagance makes chinese cities, specially Chongqing, to icons of themselves. The cityscape of Chongqing underlies, cased by an authoritarian led political system, a violently transformation. A basically pragmatic oriented practice of space production generate consequently a plenty of architectural mutations, irrational phenomena and fragments of utopia. Fantasmagoria of Chongqing is a fragmental snap-shot introspection and records an exceptional inhuman reality.
Fantasmagoria of Chongqing was exhibited at the Art Space Organhaus in Chongqing, China, in Montpellier, France and Vienna, Austria. The project is documented by a limited edition publication, which consists three posters from the exhibition and one additional booklet (off-set print, 16 pages, french and german version available). limited edition of 100, price: 12 €
