At a time when technological innovation is the driving force in the capitalist world, our perception and cognition are reduced to specific applications on smartphones. The convenience initially brought by this has quickly turned into a ‘kidnapping relationship’; later on, we would find that our perception of reality cannot but rely on these apps, or else we could not even go on with our daily life and work. People are like politicians busy encountering and coordinating between avatars of others, as well as smooth mobile phone screens, information and images fed by big data on various app pages.

Diametrically different from the familiar politics between human beings, such coordination or negotiation confronts and compels far more objects. Social media, supported by digital technology, has established a new parallel community of technological capitalism, which spurs artists to a new understanding of the relationship between image and painting: in the age of digital technology, painting is playing the role of data detox, thereby diluting and blocking the digital flood and presenting a brand new ethos of individuals surrounded by digital technology.

– Mo Shaolong

Shaolong was born 1989 in Henan Province, China. He currently lives and works in Shanghai. Recent exhibitions include ‘Hereditary Territory’ at the Powerlong Museum, Shanghai, 2021.
