Aniara Omann and Gary Zhexi Zhang
Market Gallery presents a two-person exhibition with Aniara Omann and Gary Zhexi Zhang exploring the fluidity and contradictions between disparate systems through the use of concepts derived from consciousness-based reality, quantum physics and microbiology.
The exhibition’s focus on micro-and-macro ecologies points towards the complex interrelation between global network relations and local communities as epitomised by Glasgow’s unique arts community.
Supported by Glasgow International, the Elephant Trust, Creative Scotland, Hospitalfield, MIT, Northern Film & Media, The Newbridge Project, and BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art.
