(9/11/2014, Wuhan) Organized by K11 Art Foundation, “Man-Made Cave Project - Cai Kai Residency Art Exhibition”, will be opened to the public on November 15, 2014 at Wuhan K11 art village. The exhibition will be presented through three parts respectively, namely, “Screen”, “Light”, “Performance”. Two on-site performances will be interspersed during the exhibition as an extension. The “Project” is free to the public till February 14, 2015. K11 cordially invites you to visit K11 Art Village and enjoy the charm of art! “Man-Made Cave Project” features the Wuhan-based young artist Cai Kai, whose works are created during his four-month residency at K11 art village. The artist elucidates the topic he is concerned through using multiple and random forms of media, and expresses the main ideology of his recent creation on the basis of refining and underscoring the quotidian experience. “Screen”, “Light”, “Performance”, as the keywords of the exhibition, are more like a self-restriction. The artist tries to explore a more apposite method of narrative under the condition teemed with randomness and uncertainty. In the first part of “Man-Made Cave Project”, “Screen” does not only refer to a medium, but more like a container, or a measurement. The second part of the project will explore “Light”, a medium which is common but difficult to control. To some extent, the “Light” (and also the “Shadow” formed under a shelter) constitutes “Image” to people’s understanding; meanwhile, the “Light” as an important and resourceful method of information transmission, is often regarded as a normal physics phenomenon. In this part, the artist takes “Light” and “Beam of Light” as the materials to create works. The third part will lead us to explore the theme of “Performance”. This time, the artists will use sensor device, Internet and Internet on mobile device to invite the audience to participate in the creation and exhibition of artworks. As a result, some works will be selected purposefully by the artist out of the previous two parts of the exhibition and shown again, as the final part of the residency program.
