HeK at LISTE - The Young Art Fair: Be With Me
The new House of Electronic Arts Basel is the successor of [plug.in], Art & New Media (2000-2010), and the new home for Shift - Festival of Electronic Arts (est. 2007). It presents contemporary art and music that uses and addresses electronic media. At Liste, it presents a guest project with young artists from China, curated by Li Zhenhua. Be With Me includes artworks of Aaajiao, Chen Dongfan, Cheng Ran, Double Fly Group, Fang Wei, Zheng Yunhan.
The project Be With Me addresses social media, but does not stay restricted to the online realm, as it engages with the interrelations of art, the human body, and social intervention. It is posited that by investigating the boundaries of reality, we are alive and acting. It focuses the opposing constructs of past and future, and how traces of the past relate to and impact what is about to happen.
On Wednesday, June 15th at 11am, the participants will give a talk about their work and the Be With Me project. Further information here.
