Pop-ups Walkthrough with Artists & Audiences

Warehouses 47

This video documents a walkthrough tour of FIELD MEETING Pop-ups, which brought artists, galleries & arts organizations to present installations stemming from various acts of collecting. Encompassing a range of practices, these Pop-ups also foregrounded “collecting and collections” as an inherent aspect of curatorial work and exhibition making.

Warehouse 47 presented Rana Dehghan’s (Tehran) site-specific multimedia installation which protested animal maltreatment and consumption; Hasanul Isyraf Idris’s (Penang) otherworldly illustrations drawn from the visual vocabulary of his native Pangkor Island in Malaysia; Haiyang Wang’s (Beijing) surreal scenarioed animations and drawings, alongside Yuan Gao’s (Beijing) works on paper and a short film rendered from digitized acrylic paintings; Bingyi’s (Beijing) epic trillogy of films set in the historic alleyways (hutongs) of Beiging right before they were demolished inspired by the artist’s collection of thousands of Hutong Love Letters; Bahman Mohammadi’s (Tehran) archive of paleoanthropologycal evolution
in the form of self-portraits on mix media & wood as well as on fabric.
