All of This and Nothing
01.04. - 02.29, 2020
Beijing 1st Space
Tang Contemporary Art is proud to announce the opening of “All of This and Nothing,” a solo show by American artist Michael Zelehoski, opening January 4, 2020, in the Beijing gallery’s first space. In his 2017 solo show “Inner Space,” at Tang Contemporary’s Hong Kong gallery, we saw him physically deconstruct ordinary found objects and collapse them into two-dimensional space in order to activate them on the level of our perception. In this exhibition, Zelehoski pushes this process further both conceptually and practically, revealing found objects as contemporary embodiments of ancient systems and structures.
