Boarding, the installation at Chicago Artist Coalition
Boarding is a video installation piece by Snow Yunxue Fu that was exhibited at the Chicago Artist Coalition in the show "You Are Looking Good, A Real Good Looker".
The installation is composed by airplane shaped and sized window as well as a digital 3D animation that allow the viewer to look into the interior structure of a plane as well as out-looking into a silent cloudy night. The installation is intentionally placed in an interior setting with the dual presence of both inside and outside.
"You Are Looking Good, A Real Good Looker" is co-curated by Allison Lacher and Cole Lu, this culminating HATCH Projects exhibition brings together contemporary artists from both Chicago and St. Louis.
The two groups encounter each other as strange reflections, both individually and as cities. A convergence of works and styles, as if in a hall-of-mirrors, suggests the multifaceted feelings of admiration, competition, aversion, and desire experienced when facing one’s own reflection.
Featured Chicago-based HATCH Projects artists are Jeffrey Michael Austin, Hideous Beast, Jessica Caponigro, Snow Yunxue Fu, Andy Roche, and Rafael E. Vera. Featured St. Louis-based artists are Brandon Anschultz, Lyndon Barrois Jr., Michael Byron, Sage Dawson, Lilly Randall, and Deborah Alma Wheeler. The exhibition will travel to Fort Gondo Compound for the Arts in St. Louis later in 2016.
You Are Looking Good, A Real Good Looker runs from January 8 - 28. An opening reception will take place on Friday, January 8 from 6 - 9 pm at the Chicago Artists Coalition, 217 N Carpenter St., Chicago, IL.
