Microcosm, n.2 Central Panel
Microcosm is a reinvention of Hieronymous Bosch's 15th-century masterpiece, The Garden of Earthly Delights, in which Xiaochun explores the sumptuous landscape of sin and salvation through digital technology.
Mirroring Chinese traditions, Xiaochun makes use of multiple viewpoints throughout the film, bringing the viewer into the scene in an intimate and dynamic way. By adopting multiple perspectives to add another dimension to the scene, Xiaochun addresses the relationship between the various panels where the viewer can look across heaven and hell and back again, creating a dialogue between the panels and offering the ability to discover hidden narratives within the piece.
Digital Bodies is an online group show curated by Stina Gustafsson, Chloe Diamond, Serena Tabacchi and Marie Chatel featuring works by Cao Fei, Damjanksi, Frenetik Void, Hackatao, Hu Weiyi, Joanne Hastie, Lin Tianmiao, Maurice Benayoun, Miao Xiaochun, Skygolpe, The Fabricant, Travis LeRoy Southworth, and Twistedsister.
