THE WORLDLY CAVE + Q&A with Zhou Tao
21st February 2018 @ 18:30 - 21:00
TATE MODERN presents: THE WORLDLY CAVE + Q&A with ZHOU TAO – Chinese artist Zhou Tao joins Tate to present the UK premiere of this stunningly surreal film.
Zhou Tao’s The Worldly Cave [Fán Dòng] offers a series of eye-catching shots of communities of Hakka people positioned within vast natural and man-made landscapes around the globe.
First presented as an installation at the 57th Venice Biennale in 2017, the film was recorded at carefully selected sites including the South Korean port of Incheon, the Spanish island of Menorca and the Sonoran Desert in the southwestern United States. As with previous works, Zhou stages plot-less scenes in each location, accenting the proportions between human and ground, colour and the threshold between natural and artificial environments.
