Shuang Li | Inner Voices and Exterior Visions | Tate Modern, London

Inner Voices and Exterior Visions is a two-day film programme curated by Hera Chan, Alvin Li, and Yang Li, that brings together recent work by artists who adopt languages and strategies from pop culture to reflect on its entanglement with social, political, and cosmological events.

As part of Exterior: The Science of Collective Consciousness, the narrator of the selected works shifts from human outer shells to hybrid other-than-human forms. Playfully, the works help us think about what we consider to be outside of us or on the exterior. This includes bringing together found footage and original footage about history, social media, and civilization myths.

Li Shuang's ÆTHER (Poor Objects) amalgamates disparate footage that include a solar eclipse with images brightened by ring lights, a lighting tool used by social media influencers and vloggers.

Yin-Ju Chen's Extrastellar Evaluations III : Entropy : 25800 contemplates human civilization and humanity’s future through an investigation of space physics, extraterrestrial myths, and cosmography.

Chulayarnnon Siriphol's ANG48 is the synthesis of several Asian film history archives—born as an intelligent mechanical operating system of 48 members—taking the form of a half-human and half-golden snail.


Li Shuang (b. 1990, China) work is situated in globalized communication systems and inspired by various localities and uneven information flows. Her work encompasses performance, interactive websites, sculpture, moving image installations, and studies of various mediums that compose the contemporary digital landscape. Crucial to this practice is the interaction between the medium and its users as well as amongst the mediums themselves in her exploration of how various forms of technology bring us into contact through intimacy, and how they form part of a neoliberal apparatus that regulates the body and desire.
