SMOG is an experimental exhibition following a trip to Shanghai made by a group of visual artists, writers, and curators, who search for an artistic catharsis of their shared travel experience.

Smog denotes a fog infused with the pollutants generated by hyper-urbanisation and intense fast-paced production. It coats metropolitan cities in a hazy, uncanny cloud. It blurs our sight, like technology, unfamiliar language and surveillance choke our agency, autonomy, and authenticity. It turns our experience of contemporary life and culture into one of misty judgement, informed misunderstanding and constant confusion.

Through mixed-media sculptures, sound pieces, photographic installations and video works, those who enter SMOG will experience a carefully staged cultural fog from within. A limited-edition publication accompanies the show and further documents the contemporary conditions of alienation and haziness through more personal perspectives.

Contributors:

Marlies Augustijn, Naz Bescan, Meg Brain, Lucy Gregory, Janis Lejins, Louis Shankar, Ayelet Shats, Anthony Wong, Studio SFCH with Rebecca Thumb von Neuburg and AUTOTURK (Adam Sinykin and Lena Klina) and Daniil Alexandrov.
