Exhibition: “One Kilometre Around” by Ai Shanshan

Exhibition and Shows

30 Aug 2019 to 21 Sep 2019

Shanshan Ai’s paintings record the sights of her neighbourhood. All the artworks in her new exhibition at Moonah Arts Centre (MAC) depict scenes from within a one-kilometre radius of her home in Glenorchy.
Her paintings have tracked her journey from China to Australia, then from Sandy Bay to downtown. She now lives one stop away from Glenorchy centre. The houses here are different from those she knew near the university. She says that people look different too – like people with stories.
Living in her new home, Shanshan tries to familiarise herself with all the surroundings within one kilometre of her home. Her paintings are careful observations of the strangeness, novelty and warmth that she discovers around every corner.
One Kilometre Around is one of four exhibitions opening at MAC on Thursday 29 August at 6 pm. The exhibition is open from 30 August until 21 September.

Shanshan will be at MAC on Saturday 21 September at 1pm for Conversations. This is a free, casual event where you can meet artists currently exhibiting at MAC and hear more about the stories behind their work.
