Event Description:

WSU's Art and Design Department will host the Yuge Zhou video installation exhibit, In the Shape of a City, from Monday, Oct. 16 through Wednesday, Nov. 8 in the Watkins Gallery. 

Zhou’s work originates from her simple desire to make people aware of their surroundings—both the physical and the psychological world they live in. She is deeply intrigued by the history and distinctive characteristics of American urban cities, and the collective idealism, attitudeand pace of the lives of their inhabitants.


Zhou uses her camera to document ritualistic moments of urban life and rearrange and assemble these documentations into a metaphorical city collage. The installation itself uses techniques like wall relief and projection mapping to enhance these framed glimpses as well as emphasize the physicality of digital video. This approach is inspired by the concept of architectural relief (a technique where the sculpted elements remain attached but raised above the background plane). Audiences experience a gradual shift in the appearance and depth of the installation from a flat image to a three-dimensional view with protruding geometric shapes. 

The Watkins Gallery is located in Watkins Hall on the campus of Winona State University. The gallery hosts six exhibitions by visiting artists each year along with six exhibitions of work by current WSU students. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and open late on Wednesdays until 8 p.m.

This exhibition is generously supported by Winona State University and by a grant from the Winona State University Foundation.
