New Work in Shanghai

LNA2.low

Per Hüttner will show a new installation in Shanghai entitled “3 Novels Dissected” as a part of the exhibition “Assured Stability” at V Art Center. The work circles around  The Castle by Franz Kafka, The Passion According to G.H. by Clarice Lispector and The Chronicle of a Blood Merchant by Yu Hua. The installation reflects on how literature and narrative moves between stable and unstable states. Instability is often the driving force behind action, suspense and passion. The three books depict individuals whose lives, in greatly different ways, are thrown into flux by social forces that strive for balance, uniformity or even submission. Private view May 30, 2015.
