Event description

Description

Join London-based Taiwanese artist Yu-Chen Wang for this special edition of Future Station in partnership with FACT.

Yu-Chen will discuss the development of her latest artwork, I Wish to Communicate with You, which will premiere as part of The New Observatory, a collaborative exhibition co-produced by FACT and the Open Data Institute (ODI).

The exhibition brings together an international group of artists whose work explores new and alternative modes of measuring, predicting, and sensing the world today through data, imagination and other observational methods.

I Wish to Communicate with You comprises of a large-scale drawing, mapping the diverse sites and technologies that relate to the old Liverpool and Bidston Observatories and their legacies today. Her unique style of drawing renders this network of places, communities, and instruments, as a vast evolving assemblage. Alongside this work Yu-Chen will install flags depicting designs reworking traditional semaphore iconography for the 21st century, in both FACT and atop Bidston Lighthouse and Observatory, linking the sites and reawakening Bidston’s 200-year history as site of flag-based communication.

Yu-Chen will be joined in conversation with The New Observatory exhibition co-curator, Sam Skinner.

Future Station is a series of FREE events aimed at creative practitioners in the Northwest: an opportunity to come together and discuss new work and its potential to impact on audiences.

This event is free but booking is essential: book your free ticket here. Free food will be served after the discussion.

Yu-Chen Wang is currently in residence with Metal, and will also be developing an accompany film project and delivering observational drawing workshops at FACT.

The New Observatory is open to the public from 22 June 2017 - 1 October 2017 – FACT, Liverpool.
