COLLECTOR(S) - Video Installation: The Presence is our Witness - Conversation with Zhou Tao

A Video Conversation on Collecting | Siya Chen, He Cong | China 2012


Curators Siya Chen and He Cong use images to discuss and respond to the works and methodology of artist Zhou Tao. The conversation between artist and curators is part of a fluid relationship and sharing of influences, reflected in this experimental video essay.

The video installations 1, 2, 3, 4 and Conversation with Zhou Tao are part of the special off-screen presentation Collector(s), the first Canadian solo exhibition of Chinese artist Zhou Tao, curated by Siya Chen and He Cong.

Co-presented by TPW R&D, Collector(s) the main exhibition, runs at the TPW R&D project space from November 8 - 17, with an opening reception on November 8 and a public discussion with curator Siya Chen on November 14.

Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond the control of Reel Asian, the Exhibition As A Guest & Host video exhibition has been cancelled by the curator. Instead, we are pleased to extend the Collector(s) exhibition, by presenting A Video Conversation with Zhou Tao on Collecting, by Siya Chen and He Cong at the Monarch Festival Hub on November 9, 10 & 11.  Zhou Tao's video 1,2,3,4 is also on view at the Innis College Lobby on November 7 & 8, as part of his solo exhibition Collector(s) at TPW R&D. Unfortunately, the decision was taken by the curator after our programme guide was sent to the printer. Reel Asian regrets that inaccurate information was unavoidably published in our communications.
