Going beyond notions of temporality and timelessness, Liu Dao has set out to find the wormhole that connects the many lives of a Shanghai past. As you saunter through the latest exhibition at island6, one will be transported back to the far-off and away days of Shanghai's golden era. A period that Liu Dao no dount draws considerable inspiration from, the 1920's and 30's provide a myriad of decadent imagery and sensuous charm. Smitten by the opulence and insdulgence of the time the island6 creative portal is transformed into a picture of the past, recreating the bold, unique beauty of a long from forgotten era.

In Summer of 2012, island6 landed in Hong Kong. To celebrate a full year of landing in this concrete jungle, the island6 art collective takes its inspiration from Hong Kong’s skyline. For their 5th exhibition, island6 HK tells a tale of office life. “Overload: A Tale of Officide” explores the stereotypical notions we have of office work life: from the absurdities of office politics, to the sinister trappings of stress and the glories of success. But at the very heart of it all, there is moral to our fair tale and it is one which searches for the Zen of the “Work-to-Life Balance”. In other words: make sure you’re not too bogged down with work so you can come and enjoy island6’s latest fable… (read more >>>)

The essence of time is one of the most enigmatic, intriguing and explanation defying topics in philosophy and science alike. A concept that logicians, artists and dreamers have mutually pondered for centuries, providing the framework that measures, orders, and attributes value to modern lives. Elastic in its acumen, time proves to be an ever-constant reminder representing change, evolution and sometimes stasis. For their 54th in-house exhibition, the island6 arts collective explores the multiple and converging notions of 'time', it's passing and what this means for the ever-evolving face of Shanghai. Turning to the traditional arts and philosophies of a Chinese past, while drawing inspiration from its recent shift in pace, “Temporal Visions” seeks to explore the multiple temporalities of our lucid, modern existence.

The Shanghai based arts collective brings you our 53rd in house exhibition, the "Art of Wu Wei" commemorating and celebrating these phenomenal moments of harmony, when man and nature are one. Wu Wei itself is defined as being an action that takes no action; a response that falls into place only if there is universal harmony, typifying the saying from the Tao Te Ching, "The Tao does nothing, yet leaves nothing undone". Through the use of LED technology intermingled with traditional Chinese Shan Shui (山水) and paper cutting techniques, island6 (Liu Dao) combines their contemporary and collective spirit into the traditions of Chinese art and mythology, creating a truly 'harmonious' techno vision of man and his environment. Traveling all the way from Bangkok where it debuted at the esteemed Lotus Arts de Vivre, "The Art of Wu Wei" will take over the island6 Arts Center from June 29th and run until the end of August, showcasing the collectives illuminating insight and reverence for the intersection of traditional and contemporary, mixed with irreverence, humor and compassion.

IIn this exhilarating exhibition, the electronic art collective island6 explored the human response to the living, breathing and pulsating city. The booming megalopolises of Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong provided the perfect testing grounds to trace the human reality of this new existence. As the cities of China marched ceaselessly forward in realization of an unraveling economic, political and cultural future the nature of the metropolis continues to transform. (read more >>>)

The Liu Dao collective has always been fascinated with the ability of technology to come alive, to move and to interact with a lively vigor. And with its fingers firmly on the pulse of Shanghai, island6’s exhibition, Body-City-Mechanism, explores not only the vital signs of our city but the ability of it to take a life, and perhaps a personality, of its own.

“The Art of Wu Wei” is an exhibition commemorating and celebrating phenomenal moments of harmony, taking inspiration from the traditional and timeless Chinese art and poetry. Wu Wei itself is defined as being an action that takes no action; a response that falls into place only if there is universal harmony. Instead of imposing his own beliefs on the land, the shaman merely worked with its natural designs. He ‘went with the flow’ if you will, typifying the saying from the Tao Te Ching, “The Tao does nothing, yet leaves nothing undone”. Through the use of LED technology mingled with traditional Chinese art forms, island6 (Liu Dao) combines our contemporary and collective spirit into the traditions of Chinese art and mythology, creating a truly ‘harmonious’ techno vision of man and his environment.
