Island 6 + Red Gate Gallery Beijing Vernissage

The Shanghai-based artists’ collective Island 6 is known for their interactive art installation, creating weird and wonderful narratives with LED lights…adding a different dimension to art. They are showing their new pieces at Red Gate Gallery at the Drum Tower, a historic space now becoming a hot tourist spot.

My photos didn’t quite turn out so well, but the videos here say it all. My favourites: “Galuchat Swingers” and the “Shower”.

And here is a spooky piece of installation. I love the layers of power play, so who’s really looking at who?
