Hu Jieming is one of the pioneers of digital media and video installation art in today's China. He shows his partiality to interdiscipline which leads into a blending of remote fields. Hu’s works pay attention to internal physiology by transferring physical diagrams, gestures, architectural areas, identifications and staves etc. into a synthesised visual experience. Hu Jieming raises views and questions about time, space, history and memory, while his art covers a range of medium working with photography, video and digital interactive technology. He places the audience in the past and an uncertain situation, reminding them of personal memories to shape up individual texts. The objects, materials, videos, interactive programs and intelligentised controlling system in Hu’s works have embodied a nondescript domain which embraces infinite historical memories. They tangle with each other, cover each other, continuously dissolve themselves and generate each other. His works convey not only feelings towards objects, actually a new narrative relationship is established upon the present time and space.Read More

Mention new media art, and the first things which might come to mind are a sense of ephemerality and insubstantiality – the evanescence of artworks which exist, in some sense, as particular arrangements of bits. Not so with The Dynamics, a largely new media-based group exhibition at Singapore’s ShanghART gallery, which places some...
