LISTE ART FAIR BASEL
For LISTE Art Fair Basel 2022, Tabula Rasa Gallery is delighted to announce the solo presentation “2022 Diaspora as History” of the multimedia artist & activist aaajiao.“Disapora as History” explores the senses and sentiments of artist himself, a person struggling to remain mobile in his identity. The sense of identity dilemma derives from the notion of being a place-based Sinitic speaker, who seeks identity independence from his national origins and his use of language. Further influenced by recent literatures in Sinophone studies, aaajiao presents us a visual thesis about the evolution of his identity and the world he sees. It responds to his personal experience, the socio-political tension specific to Chineseness, and his dual existence on the Internet and in this world.
