ShanghART Beijing is pleased to present Hu Jieming’s first solo exhibition: Synchrony in Beijing on September 17th, 2016. The exhibition will combine three sets of artworks from different time spans: Synchrony (2016), The Remnant of Images (2013-now) and Related to Happiness (1999).

Synchrony is Hu Jieming’s latest work. It is a large-scale digit synthesis video that will take up the entire expanse of the exhibition room’s wall (7x20 meters). The style of group shots is used to present a gathering of people that appears to spread across the realms of space and time. The identities of these people are hybridized, creating a unique space-time relation and a narrative that switches back and forth between settings. The artist employs digital technology to assemble people from different areas, eras and social hierarchy, and uses image synthesis technology to activate their facial expressions and movements. Hence, the fragments of people in the image can narrate and deliver information from afar.

The Remnant of Images consists of more than 60 videos with different screen sizes and will be scattered around the exhibition room. The images of the video are also from a distant time and space. They are single images much like scenes within a photo album, and are divided into categories of “people” and “scenery”. In the center of the exhibition room will be the artist’s video installation Related to Happiness created in 1999. The lyrical sounds generated from the body itself will echo melodiously in this dialogue between the past and present.

Hu Jieming was born in Shanghai in 1957. He raises views and questions about time, space, history and memory, while his art covers a range of medium working with photography, video and digital interactive technology.
