until 21.10. | #0697ARTatBerlin | Migrant Birds Space presents from 9th September 2016 the exhibition Game of Codes by the artists Silia Ka Tung and Ma Li.
We sincerely invite you to the Vernissage of the exhibition: *Game of Codes*, which presents 2 excellent young Chinese female artists, Silia Ka Tung and Ma Li.
Migrant Birds Space Berlin is pleased to present a two-person show Game of Codes, featuring Hong Kong artist Silia Ka TUNG, who is based in London, and Chinese artist Li MA, who is based in Berlin and San Francisco. This exhibition will present their latest works.
Game of Codes refers to the original source code of game programs, which is the basic command in game development. Here the “game” concept is employed to refer to the two artists’ art practice as an endless language game while the code, as a metaphor, sees the work of the two artists as the process of writing code. Therefore, their unique artistic journey are formed via continuous “programming”.
The works of this exhibition include Tung’s soft sculptures, installations, and paintings, and Li MA’s sculptures of material collage, video installation and live performance. The exhibition aims to form an insightful dialogue between the world of magic, the surreal, and the mundane daily reality. Both artists devote their artistic practice to explore the playful combination of materials and objects.
We are looking forward to your visit and hope you have a joyful night in our space.
