NOW | Ye Funa: From Hand to Hand

Saturday 24 March 2018Monday 07 May 2018

Work by Chinese artist Ye Funa part of NOW: A dialogue on female Chinese contemporary artists. Ye Funa’s practice is concerned with the boundaries between daily life and contemporary art. Her work explores the effects of new media and globalisation on cultural identity and gender. For this exhibition, Ye will produce a new episode in her online Peep-Stream series, addressing society’s current desire to display ourselves through selfies, webchats and social media. Ping-Pong Stream, an interactive live streamed performance, will focus on China’s waning interest in ping pong in favour of celebrity sports of basketball and football. Produced in The Space at Nottingham Contemporary, Ping Pong Stream will tell the story of Yong Ping, a former Ping Pong World Champion. The final video will be embedded in an immersive installation that converts the Project Space into a nail salon. Here, nails become the exhibition space through which Ye artificially reforms the natural extremities of the body. This exhibition is part of NOW: A Dialogue on Female Chinese Contemporary Artists, in collaboration with CFCCA, HOME, Turner Contemporary, MIMA and Tate. Find out more about NOW at CFCCA.

NOW includes an artist film series from HOME (Manchester) and a symposium hosted by Tate Research Centre: Asia (London)
