Ullens Center for Contemporary Art (UCCA) presents a solo exhibition by Irish artist John Gerrard, his first in China. Power. Play features three recent and important works, including the celebrated piece, Solar Reserve (Tonopah, Nevada), 2014. Gerrard is widely regarded as a pioneer of digital media, often exploring geographically isolated locations and referring to structures of power and networks of energy that have coincided with the expansion of human endeavor in the past century. These key works, exhibited at UCCA, are emblematic of Gerrard’s feats of documentation followed by painstaking digital replication.
