Still image from 'Bubbles'

A portrait plays a memory support function, reminding us of the subject through an artistic representation of the person.
Video artists create a person's portrait with the help of the camera, using the advantages of image evolution in time. At their disposal are moving pictures, sound, speech, playing with time and the possibility of creating a performance and dialog with a viewer. They are able to capture a valuable few minutes of the subject's life, extracted from reality.
This group exhibition features the work of Shen Wei, who has created a performance titled "Bubble" which sublimates an existential drama from the simple action of blowing saliva bubbles.
