Tong Kunniao

The Myth of Human Nature
02.09. – 15.10.2022
SETAREH is pleased to announce Beijing-based artist
Tong Kunniao‘s solo exhibition The myth of human nature on the occasion of this year's DC Open Galleries.
The practice of Tong Kunniao links different conceptual ideas through a collection and assemblage of second-hand and disregarded items (Objet trouvé). A vivid facial expression, detached from its human entity, is fused with a sculptural elaboration of technological instruments. How does such a hybrid connection between extremity and industrial production behave?Tong‘s works combine a genuine investigation into the age of transhumanism and artificial intelligence, while questioning the identification of human nature.
