Field Recordings exhibition brings together a new single-channel work made in Shanghai, XiaoPudong (2017) with Zhu Weihua, and a multi-channel video with workers on the boats and along the banks of the Suzhou and Changjiang Rivers in Shanghai, and travelling to Hengsha Island.

It also includes artworks made individually by each artist. These works not only show what is seen, but also what is able to be seen, or able to be shared, through the relative relationships each artist has with the place. 
This exhibition is accompanied by a publication designed by Narrow Gauge, Layla Tweedie-Cullen. It includes essays by Emma Ng, Michael Wilson and Hsieh Feng-Rong, and will be launched alongside a floor-talk by Li Xiaofei, with the collective. 

Floor talk with Li Xiaofei
