A solo exhibition by Xinyu Liu.


"As long as necessity is socially dreamed, dreaming will remain a social necessity. The spectacle is the bad dream of a modern society in chains and ultimately expresses nothing more than its wish for sleep. The spectacle is the guardian of that sleep."


- Guy Debord, The Society of the Spectacle


In " Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls," Xinyu attempts to reexamine the relationship between dream and spectacle. These interwoven images reveal a desire to reconnect different social landscapes and complex relations of production through dreaming. The metaphoric hierarchy of images refuses to resolve to a knowable schema but rather indicates that such desire could transcend beyond spectacles in our day-to-day existence. Signifiers of fragmented social reality are rearranged in this metaphorical dream, seeking to transgress the interlocking relations of political economy under the facade of spectacle. The dream is another roll of the dice.
