Asia House, 63 New Cavendish Street London W1G 7LP Monday 24 August – Friday 27 November 2015 Monday to Friday 10.00 – 18.00 Lower Ground Floor (outside the Asia House Gallery) Free Admission The Taiwanese artist Ting-Tong Chang investigates intercultural conventions of science, nature and society that continue to trouble the world to this day. Presented at Asia House as a preview for his upcoming 2016 solo exhibition are two works: Future Free and Just Society and Chinese Tree. Future Free and Just Society consists of two bird automatons perching on top of a tree, re-enacting the famous televised 1971 debate ‘On Human Nature’ between Noam Chomsky and Michel Foucault. The automatons, meaning “acting of one’s own will” in Greek, are created to simulate real birds: their mouths move, heads shake and wings flap. Is there such a thing as “innate” human nature? They discuss. The philosophical argument rooted in linguistics (Chomsky) and the theory of knowledge (Foucault), soon evolves into a broader discussion encompassing a wide range of topics, from science, history, and behaviourism to creativity, freedom and the struggle for justice in the realm of politics. Chinese Tree comically enquires into the cultural politics of London, through the eyes of the artist Ting-Tong Chang who migrated in 2008. The exhibited drawing is part of the series of ‘imaginary voyages’ entitled The Discovery of a New World or a Description of the North Indies where the so-called global village is presented as Vilcabamba, the lost city of Inca. Here, the branches of 19th Century German biologist Ernst Haeckel’s tree of life is filled with Chinese nationals, opening the storyline with an anticipated end of the profane and triumph of the sacred. The exhibition has been organised in collaboration with independent Japanese curator Eiko Honda. For more information on Ting-Tong Chang: http://www.tingtongchang.co.uk

"Flight of the Langoustine" Bronze & Steel / Public Realm. Pierre Diamantopoulo MRBS. One of three winning sculptures awarded a place on the forthcoming Hove Plinth. Each sculpture will be taking its turn on the Plinth on the Hove Seafront Promenade for a period of 12 - 18 months, then will be allocated a permanent site in Hove and Brighton. This will be an ongoing programme of sculptures, on a similar basis to The Forth Plinth at Trafalgar Square. Maquettes have already been commissioned and fund-raising has started with a view to installing sculptures from Spring 2017. “Flight of the Langoustine” was inspired after a bit of beach-combing. A storm had deposited a mangled lobster pot yards from my (first) studio under the arches in Brighton. This washed-up object had been a means of escape for the lobsters and this translated itself into a human story of exodus and release – a dash for freedom."

Dick Onians' new piece “The Still Centre of the Turning World” commissioned for New Capital Quay, Greenwich Reach, descends from a line of sculptures that explore overlapping forms. The spherical shape is a reference to the globe. The form of the piece with its equator, longitudinal features and tilt allude to the work’s location near the Greenwich Mean and Greenwich’s historic role as a centre for navigation and worldwide trade. The title highlights the idea of mystery at the center of things and our ability to see our own reflection on the inside implicates us in the central mystery.

This large scale mirrored glass installation has just been given by Donna MacMillan to the Palm Springs Art Museum for their permanent collection. It consists of 100 large sealed bottles suspended down 3 floors in their main entrance to the collection. Each bottle contain a work/message by another artist who I invited to participate in the original project commissioned by Ha gamle prestegard for Stavanger 2008 - when it was European City of Culture. The work was originally installed in a 6 story lighthouse and recalls the classical story of Zeus and Danae, where in order to have her he turns himself into a shower of gold.
