The Opposite Shore (對岸) presents several video installations and paintings by rising Chinese artist Wu Junyong (吳俊勇). In highly detailed though simply wrought animations, Wu updates ancient Chinese fables with contemporary slang to depict the absurdity of the human condition. The artist’s paintings show people participating in wacky exercises like slicing the neck of a dragon into steaks — a gently pointed metaphor for contemporary politics, particularly the manner in which it plays out on both sides of the Taiwan Strait.
