News: Mutations, Guan Xiao at High Line, New York


Guan Xiao is participating Mutations, an open-air exhibition that explores the relationship between man and nature, looking at how the boundaries between the natural world and culture are defined, crossed, and obliterated. The exhibition is inspired by the High Line as a controlled environment that encapsulates, on the one hand, the modern dream of humans taming nature, and on the other, the promise of nature reclaiming its control. The exhibition asks: as technology becomes more invisible and genetic engineering more conceivable, how do the delineations between nature and culture shift and transform?
