Untitled Solo Project
4-channel video installation (site-specific), sound, performance, sculpture
Juyi Mao’s exhibition Untitled Solo Project in the Main Building will take place twice. As a solo project of thesis exhibition and as an art piece automatic become a solo exhibition. The solo exhibition is an achievement of successful artists and usually is accompanied by receptions and a great deal of publicity. It shows the authority and legitimacy of an emerging artist who graduated recently. In this project, the artist manipulates and takes advantage of institutional spaces, schedules, and resources in order to produce artistic interventions in the group show. Therefore, this paradoxical project becomes a self-sufficient process as a solo exhibition. Every single work in the “exhibition” will be accomplished and organized as elements to serve this project. The project contains every feature of a regular solo show.
