The Shanghai- and Belin-based artist aaajiao presents his first solo exhibition in Europe, at House of Egorn, with a video piece and a series of sculptural works, all of which are especially created for the occasion. The large-scale installation in the gallery space is a reflection on the general consumption of molecules, particles and other minutiae in both his private and public life, blown up to almost surrealistic dimensions. Through journeys across the city on foot, by car and by other means, his video 'bot,' displays an environment deeply intertwined with by a digital past as well as its present counterpart. Reflecting on this intersection, local and global networks, social media, gardening structures, parks, and finally nature itself all become amalgamated into a digital hyper-representation.
