chinese artist hong hao will be showing an eclectic spectrum of works in an upcoming exhibition at the pace gallery in beijing from march 16th through to april 27th, 2013. pieces from one of hao’s best known photographic series will be shown, ‘my things’ are visuals made up of thousands of scanned images depicting objects from his own life. these ordinary things – shown life sized – are arranged and assembled by hao using a computer, and represent over 20 years of accumulation on the part of the artist while others could have just been part of that day’s lunch. these micro universes encompass the various flotsam and jetsam – important or trivial – that fill up a life, reflecting on ourcollective experience through the lens of an artist.
