Exhibition in Shanghai by Inga Svala Thorsdottir
Thing’s Right(s) 09 is a project by Wu Shanzhuan and Inga Svala Thorsdottir that investigates the way in which we attach values to an object. An object in itself means nothing without its negotiation and circulation in broader social and political domains.
Using language and text as a fundamental form of expression, since 1995 both artists have been investigating the actual rights surrounding an object in order to address issues of freedom and our existence. Wu is one of the leading figures of the Chinese Avant-garde movement of the 1980’s, particularly known for his Red Humor International in 1986. Thorsdottir is an Icelandic artist who has been working collaboratively with Wu since the early 1990’s.
