Mapping out the surreal geography of the soul

Artist Hu Weiyi combines experimental film and theatrical performance in an explosion of color

There is a surreal atmosphere surrounding Hu Weiyi’s work.

Blending experimental film and theatrical performance, the 31-year-old Shanghai-born artist provides a window to a world of possibilities.

His secret involves combining video, installation, sculpture and sound in a glorious explosion of color.

“In-depth research and an interest in experimental film imbue [his] multimedia experiments,” HdM Gallery stated.

“[He] uses [this] to open new avenues for social ethnography, both as artist and curator,” it said.
