ShanghART Gallery is pleased to present group exhibition “Summer Wind Flirts among Words” from 27 July to 28 August 2019, showcases works that involve languages, speech and characters by sixteen artists. This is the first exhibition in theme of text at ShanghART Gallery. Exhibited artists include Geng Jianyi, Li Pinghu, Li Ran, Lin Aojie, Ouyang Chun, Shao Yi, Shen Fan, Shi Yong, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Wu Yiming, XU ZHEN®, Xue Song, Yang Zhenzhong, Zhang Ding, Zhang Qing and Zhou Tiehai.

While texts are symbol systems carrying ideas, narratives and languages, reading is a cognitive process to interpret the text based on personalised knowledge structure. However, works in this exhibition, in mediums such as video and installation, break the routine of reading, and replace it through character transformation, order disruption, instant built-up, sound and image presentation and so on. These approaches endow the behaviour of “reading” with rhythm instead of intuitively presenting the content. As the carrier of specific meanings, texts are transformed by artists into the construction and interpretation of concepts, while viewers are offered the opportunity to decipher the clues as they read and listen in their respective context.
