Jim Speers at Fei Art Center, Shanghai

Long Days — Jim Speer

Opening: October 20 2012, 6pm

To observe things is to recognize the passing of time. Jim Speers uses video to explore economic activities in urban landscapes, attending to the particularity of events and objects.

He films landscapes being altered by social developments, making the viewer an observer to the commonplace scenes gliding into history. The sequences he creates are ordinary today but will need explanation in the future. The videos on display present a mixture of objects, stories and historical facts. Everything is connected: flags and taxi trips are interwoven with people’s memories and plants growing.
