Pulsating Atom by Tao Hui, Single channel HD video, colour, sound, 14min 12sec.

How we live and relate to each other in light of increased digitisation is at the core of Rhythm and Senses, the first solo exhibition of Tao Hui (b. 1987, Chongqing) at the gallery. Tao Hui is a Chinese artist born in the city of Chongqing. Using the language of video and installation, Tao Hui expresses collective experience, the focus of which is often social identity, gender status, ethnicity and cultural crisis. Running throughout his work is a sense of misplacement, prompting the audience to face their own cultural histories, living conditions and social identities. Exploring the pace of our present existence and our responses to such, Tao Hui navigates through four distinct works the unstable complications we face, our shifting perceptions as well as spiritual needs.

Edouard Malingue Gallery was founded in Hong Kong in 2010 to build a critical dialogue between Asian and international contemporary artists, both emerging and established, who combine aesthetic concern with conceptual enquiry, and work across different disciplines from video and installation to painting and sound. In 2016 the gallery opened a second space in Shanghai, creating a wider platform of exchange for its roster of artists. In addition to presenting dynamic solo exhibitions, the gallery pushes the boundaries of art in public spaces and stimulates artistic discourse through collaborations with curators worldwide.
