Curated by Ella Liao

Osage Shanghai is pleased to present, I'm Too Sad to Tell You, a solo exhibition featuring multimedia works by Shanghai-based German artist Alexander Brandt (Fei Pingguo).

The title of the exhibition takes inspiration from the famous piece I'm Too Sad to Tell You, a short film by Dutch conceptual artist Bas Jan Ader in which, Ader presents himself in front of the camera and breaks down and cries for the entire 3 minutes 21 seconds of the film. Fei is attracted to such emotions that are conveyed by facial expressions and invites audiences into this intensely charged emotional space. It is being in this space that allows us to re-examine our inner world, and get to know better the stranger that dwells within us.

I'm Too Sad to Tell You You presents five of Fei's installations, shown for the first time in Shanghai, which explore human behaviour through multimedia interactions. The works possess multiple layers of interactivity: technological, physical as well as sociological.

Opening Reception: Saturday 25 July 2009, 6:00pm
I'm Too Sad to Tell You continues until 30 August 2009

Videos present some unused places in Shanghai that artist transformed into stages.

As the exhibition continues on the upper floor, visitors realized that the videos on the 2nd floor where in live and not pre-recorded.
