The artist and composer Pan Daijing (b. 1991, Guiyang; lives in Berlin) presents her first large-scale live exhibition in Asia as the grand finale of trust & confusion. Comprising durational performances as well as multiple video and sound installations, Pan’s work seeks proximity with the visitors by proposing a profoundly intimate form of shelter akin to the musicality of the space. It immerses us into voices and gestures that guide, accompany, and incline inward. All that had been accumulating on this floor since May—sculptures, routines, listening tools, and images, by many artists—has disappeared.

For Pan, the act of voicing today has an existential allure as it can reveal a deeply personal dimension of life in an age of damage, loss, and longing. Acknowledging the sense of collective solitude, Echo, Moss and Spill spins parallel worlds of science fiction and vocal power. Hope, despair, and trance here are inseparable, time is suspended, visual and sonic landscape—distorted. All—in continuous movement.

Live performance daily from 1230-630pm.
