Remnants of Half Rabbit at Platform China
The Half Rabbit exhibition started as a curated space of sculpture, audio-visual and sound work. With the help of the collaborating Chinese artists 'Local Whispers' first shown at the V&A, was developed to become a reference for the current interpretive situation. Sound recordings of artists discussing the 'Half Rabbit' exhibition at Platform China Institute of Contemporary Arts were collected during the month of July. Recordings were edited, then presented four days before the end of the 'Half Rabbit' exhibition.
All current exhibition artworks were removed from the gallery to leave it bare with only audio ghosts installed in the three rooms.
Artists involved; Sui Jianguo, Experimenter En Couleur, Jun Yuan, Yan Jun, Ruan Qianrui, Ding Xin, Christian Krupa, Alexis Murakami.
