Catching Up With Lolo y Sosaku - Part 2. by Tsering Frykman-Glen

You can read part 1 of this series here, it has some beautiful video and photo documentation of Lolo y Sosaku's time working with Bien Urbain in Besançon, France.

This second part is about their time in Shanghai.

Not long after Bien Urbain, Lolo y Sosaku set off for Shanghai to work on a project organised by Art World magazine and the Power Station of Art. This culminated in Lolo y Sosaku creating a substantial sound installation ("Motors 2") for the exhibition "Snacks" which launched on July 16th and closes on October 16th. If you happen to be in the area, we thoroughly recommend that you check it out while it is still on.

This exhibition aims to showcase "the unclassifiable ideas, experiments, and experiences of diverse life styles in different places all over the world".

The other 37 artists and artist groups participating along side Lolo y Sosaku in this show are Feng Li, Tang Yan/Boisbrain, Jin Ningning, Si Wei, Wen Ling, Dagua × Li Shanshan, Xie Shaojie, Chen Zhe, Dai Jianyong (Coca), Dong Pan, Xiang Yata, Dick Ng, Nathan Zhou, Wang Yiquan, Zhang Da, Zhu Fa, Yancong, Yang Xuede, Zhang Hui, Shen Wei, Yu Ji, Ouyang Yingji/Au Yeung Ying Chai, Liao Guohe, Hiroshi Watanabe, Yuichi Yokoyama, Hankil Ryu, Eduardo Kac, Brandon Ballengée, Marcel Dzama, Tomoko Sawada, Olivier de Sagazan, Morag Myerscough & Luke Morgan, Jan Bucquoy, Boonsri Tangtrongsin, Boris Hoppek, Escif and Christophe Demaître.

One half of the Tangent Team was lucky enough to go to Shanghai for the final stages of the install and the opening, unfortunately not the half that is writing this... and this team half is incredibly jealous! So, if you are in the area, don't miss out, get over there - the show is on until October 16th!

But for the rest of us who can't make it, here is a beautiful video and some installation shots of Lolo y Sosaku's "Motors 2".

You can read Art Radar's review of the show here.

In our third catch up with Lolo y Sosaku we will look at their residency in Montemor-O-Novo, Portugal. We will be posting that very soon! :)
