On 27 March 2020, Goethe Open Space 2020 launched the solo exhibition Cyborg Archaeological Laboratory of artist Pan Zishen, which builds an imaginary laboratory site, implanting the atmosphere and situational field of a "Fictional Archaeology", leading the audience to imagine and predict how people in the "far future" look back and study our current early Cyborg society stage. In this online opening live-stream Pan Zishen together with her curator Zhang Ting will guide you through the exhibition, introduce you the main concepts, and explain the art objects, installation and video works such as Bond (2019), Fission (2019), Equable Temperament Series (2018), also Floating (2019) and Seed Chips (2019). All these art works comprehensively convey a nostalgic display of Cyborg imagery.
Starting from 30 March 2020, Cyborg Archaeological Laboratory is open for public. You can experience this exhibition physically with all your senses by visiting our institute. Each hour we allow a maximum of three people to enter exclusively the exhibition space. Green Shanghai QR Code, mask, and temperature check are required. Please choose your preferred time slot in advanced and register online via Huodongxing. (Link: http://hdxu.cn/CV8kS)
