We’re very pleased to announce that the design and curation of the pavilion will be undertaken by CSM students and staff. There will be two animations by students from MA Character Animation and two films by MA Communication Design students.
Each will be 129 seconds long, the average time a visitor spends in a Biennale pavilion. The theme of the films will be based on the proposal submitted by Jeremy Till, Head of College:
We live, Zygmunt Bauman tells us, in an age of liquid modernity. Labour, capital, time and commodities have achieved an unheard-of sense of fluidity as global flows of people, money, the virtual and goods dissolve previously stable conditions. And yet against this socio-temporal liquidity, space has apparently hardened, throwing up ever more rigid boundaries as the production of space is increasingly codified and commodified. The proposal for the UK pavilion at the Shenzhen Biennale investigates how a new generation of British architects, spatial agents and activists are challenging the fixity of boundaries and the regulation of space.
About the Shenzhen Biennale:
Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture (UABB) is currently the only bi-annual exposition in the world to be based exclusively on the set themes of city and urbanization. Co-organized by the two neighboring and closely interacting cities of Shenzhen and Hong Kong, UABB situates itself within the regional context of the rapidly urbanizing Pearl River Delta, concerns itself with globally common urban issues, extensively communicates and interacts with the wider public, is presented using expressions of contemporary visual culture, and engages international, avant-garde dimensions as well as discourses of public interest.
