Shanghai-based multimedia artist Xu Zhen features a group of performers floating mysteriously in mid-air for In Just a Blink of an Eye, defying the constraints of physics as if frozen in time and space.

“‘#InJustaBlinkofanEye’ is about states of limbo. It jarringly forces viewers to question the laws of physics. It’s also about the human form and materiality of the body, and it’s something of a meditation on stillness and the fluidity of time.” #XuZhen: In Just a Blink of an Eye is now on view every Saturday and Sunday through September 1 at MOCA Grand!

MOCA, where the performance work is on view through September, says that “as the audience waits for movement, for the performer to stand up, or for them to continue to follow the rules of gravity, they instead experience time and stillness as moments extend and are stretched out on through these living sculptures.”
