An imaginary football match played by blue and red ink figures: attack – defence – goal. And one injured player. Caibei Cai and Ang Li draw us into their graphically fascinating sci-fi cosmos of the cellular tissue which serves as a football pitch for blood corpuscles and defence cells, visualised by microscopic negative shots of cells, insects and plant particles.

Overgrown urban wasteland with forgotten objects, stairs, railways leading nowhere, a dripping moon – Yuan Gao’s paintings are straight objective representations of the unspeakable und uncertain. In “Lunar Dial” she arranges her paintings in time, animates important details and creates an associative and compelling bicycle ride. A trip under the influence of the moon, whose gravitational pull dictates the tides and keeps the mysteries together by magic.
