  • Text by Karchun Leung

In this series at the Other Gallery, Xu Wenkai aka Aaajiao turns to the stream of data flow, inspired by new structures, as well as the visual inertia and placebo effect. "Placebp" is coupled with another series called "Cybernetics", made in 2009 and 2010. These works form small documents, aimed at systematic and thorough examining the way of thinking, art making, expressing and presenting of this young and active media artist, to manifest his capability.

Aaajiao's Placebo runs to December 25 at the Other Gallery @

101, Building 9, 50 Moganshan Road
