Preface “Lost and Found in the Sights” combines a wide range of courses, methods and outcomes of inter-medium practices by artists from both China and overseas. As the title implies, our interests fall into the following aspects: How do these artists build their particular logics and overviews, designing the visual games of their emotional feelings to their full extent? How do these individuals and their works break towards heterogeneity from their respective contexts? And finally, in what ways and positions do feelings that are either caused by grand narrative or devised by technical patterns stand today? The practices and outcomes in this exhibition are trans-era, trans-territory and trans-media. Artworks are arranged and placed in a poetic structure, and the inter-connectivity among them is plausible and intangible. The exhibition touches upon contemporary subjects including digital capitalism, overload information, genetic engineering, gender and politics, which builds up conversations between local, historical contexts and the emerging forms of arts. Participating artists include sculptor PAN He from Lingnan region, contemporary artist YU Youhan from Shanghai, French Russian digital artist Olga KISSELEVA, photographer YANG Zanmin, young artists and art groups whom are actively working in China and West Europe : CHAN Chiao Chun, Lisa (Elizabeth) BARDIN, YE Jiatang, XU Sheng, XIAO Zhiren, Théophile BLANDET, LV Jieyi, LIU Zejing, LIANG Siting, Li Yushi, and HUANG Yong.
