Hailed as a pioneering video artist in China, he is one of the first to use digital editing in his practice. His solo exhibition in Hong Kong runs at White Cube until 11 November 2017. Rotation is Chinese artist Wang Gongxin's first solo exhibition in Hong Kong. The artist is known for his video art, and is one of the pioneers in using recording and projection technologies in his work. In the current show at White Cube, Wang's installations created in the early to mid-1990s immediately preceding his shift to the medium of video are on display. Juxtaposed against these installations are three new works created this year. These new installations have been planned in the 1990s, yet the artist lacked resources back then to realise such works.
