On 24 November, the Han Nefkens Foundation will present, at MACBA’s Convent dels Àngels Auditorium, the video Blue and Red (2014) by the Chinese artist Zhou Tao (Guangzhou, 1976), winner of the first HNF / BACC Award for Contemporary Asian Art, presented by the FHN in Bangkok on January 2015.

The video Blue and Red was produced during Zhou Tao’s stay in Bangkok, coinciding with a turbulent moment in the history of the country, marked by an attempted coup d’état. As a document, it illustrates the civil war atmosphere in a subjective and poetic manner. Time and landscapes mix fluidly to narrate a story of extreme sensuality, despite its semi-documentary character.
