Yu-Chen Wang's quasi-fictional book, The Song of the Machines features stories about the artist's life and her practice. Reality and fiction are blurred through the display of new work, documentation, critical texts and creative writing. Her work explores the notion of representation, distortion and transformation, and the transitional space between them. Using a mixture of drawings, objects, installation, performance and film, the artist constructs visual narratives to explore the concept of machines and energy, and art's potential in dreaming of and hoping for a better future. Writers include Jennifer Thatcher, Bob Dickinson, Georgia Korossi, Nicolas de Oliveira/Nicola Oxley , Rudyard Kipling, Sophia Crilly and Chelsea Pettitt. 3pm Yu-Chen Wang book launch of The Song of the Machines with film screening and a performative talk by Sophia Crilly For more information: http://www.the-song-of-the-machines.yuchenwang.com
