Position Fixing 定位 Three Group-Exhibitions at Guangzhou Opera House
1st December 2016 to 18 January 2017
Exhibition of a young generation of Asian artists confronting a group of western artists.
”Position Fixing 定位“
The main idea of those group-exhibitions was to show the new generations of Asian Artists with a special selection group show from China, Greater China ( Taiwan, Hong Kong,) South-East Asia (Singapore) and Korea, and to confront them to the new generation of western artists who also have expressed messages and a new vision of art through different channels, new media or social media, narrating a new kind of 'story of the world', witness of their generation and mutable identities. One of the main point related to those artists is what they expressed through the idea of movement, motion, connection, mapping, social media technologies, and geo-localisation.

The Title of the exhibition is Position Fixing as a "cursor-witness" of the new contemporary art generation, including videos, movies, short movies, web pages, music, and installations. Something is coming now out of this new-art generation and tools, social media, and video, which is going to transform the cognitive response, resulting in a new position fixing.
Here Position is more related to something close to the idea of positioning as the P of GPS in Global Positioning System.Positions may be expressed as a bearing and range from a known landmark or asan angles of latitude and longitude relative to a map datum.
In practice observations are subject to errors resulting from various physical and atmospheric factors that influence the measurement of distances and angles.
A position fix is calculated by taking into account measurements (referred to as observations) of distances or angles to reference points whose positions are known. In 2D surveys observations of three reference points are enough to compute a position in a two dimensional plane. The artists we selected, all interpret through videos an art sequence related to position, motions, or mapping, so we also decided to focus our exhibition on the different approach related to the Cognitive Response Model in their work, states that receivers can be conscious reactive members in the persuasion process.
The exhibition is located in SanXuanShi Museum which is inside the Opera House of Guangzhou.
Some of the installations and videos will be also displayed inside the projections rooms of the Opera House and also outdoor.
The Exhibition is curated by Cecily Jin and Fabien Pacory.
The exhibition is also supported by CJ CULTURE FOUNDATION (CJ Group) and PACORY ART ADVISORY
