News: A Temporary Futures Institute, Guan Xiao at M HKA Museum of Contemporary Art, Antwerp
Guan Xiao’s new video Dengue Dengue Dengue (2017), which she specially developed for this exhibition A Temporary Futures Institute.
While based on footage from a feverish, stormy, robotic today, Guan Xiao’s video triptych comes across as a meditation on a ‘panchronic’ existence, in which the past, present and future share the same space-time – and attack us simultaneously. Both the title and the audio-visual montage employ her favoured method of pinning down the abstract with the demonstratively concrete.
