We are flying to Shanghai in 10 days for the 5th times. I am still teaching Interior Design in Shanghai SCF – Dongua University.
It was time to get through the pictures I took there in October/November/December
During the week-ends we had the chance to visit Xian to see the mind Blowing Terracotta Army and went for a hiking trip with Hiking Lovers to Xianju Gong Yu, where we slept in a tent by 5 degrees 🙂 .
We also saw some great exhibitions/installations:
The Eternal Thread by Louise Bourgeois @ Long Museum West bund
Mind Temple @ MOCA
The incredible “Shanghai Biennale” exhibition called Proregress @ Power Station of Art
Mumbling Mud by Katharina Grosse @ Chi K11
The Rain Room by Random International & The Artist is present by Maueizio Cattelan @ Yüz Museum
Construction of reality by Leandro Erlich & a Joseph Beuys exhibition @ How art museum
Cindy Sherman exhibition @ Bund Finance Centre
Partial Phenomena by Zheng Lu @ Shanghai Gallery of Art
Incarnation by Yao Jui-Chung @ Swatch Art Peace Hotel
Today the city is best known for the hundreds of crab-eating macaques that live in the middle of the city, especially around the Khmer temple. They invade a sweet where all the batmen’s are abandoned and monkeys make the law. It is quite impressive, but they were not agressive and did not take any attention to us (yet, we were careful).
No much to see, so no much to say. We saw what is a typical thai city with no tourists. We just walked around for an afternoon and went to bet a 7pm 😉
