'Memory Goes as Far as This Morning'; A dialogue between Gideon Rubin and Shu Qun
On September 23rd, 2016, Chengdu MOCA (China) will open the two man show ‘Memory goes as far as this morning' featuring gallery artist Gideon Rubin and Shu Qun.
The title of this exhibition, quoted from a poem by the noted Chinese poet Bei Dao, alludes to the disposable nature of 'news': The nation has lost its memory / Memory goes as far as this morning. Memory and history are universal themes, explored by artists throughout time. In this exhibition in Chengdu, both artists filter history and memories, each from his own unique perspective, while the audience is invited to revisit their own past experiences. The convergence of memory and history are of major interest and concern to Rubin, their nature and the thin line between the personal and the general constituting keys to his narrative.
