Tunnel” is an exhibition that will showcase Fu’s new series of investigative video projection and media installation, which continues her formal and conceptual exploration of the liminal space among the physical, virtual, and metaphysical realms.

The work engages in a Kantian quest to capture the experience of the sublime through the limited means of human consciousness. The moving image component of the work is inspired from Fu’s recent travel experience through a long and narrow mountain tunnel with small but increasingly larger windows that eventually reveal a great expansive landscape.

Located at Mana Contemporary Chicago in a space generously provided by The Propeller Fund, Threewalls and Gallery 400, the Dinca Space (DS) is a visual arts workspace producing small-scale exhibitions, events, and a micro-residency program.

The Dinca Space was founded with the primary goal of strengthening the visual arts community by providing new opportunities for artists, curators, programmers, and creators to exhibit and organize events through cooperative efforts, serving as a visual arts production space that is open to the public, i.e., anyone with interest in organizing an event or exhibition at the DS is welcome to submit a 1–2 page project proposal, and opportunities will be awarded to project proposals that communicate an interesting concept that is logistically feasible. The DS is capable of hosting a variety of smaller-scale productions including group exhibitions, solo exhibitions, performances, moving image installations, screenings, workshops, lectures, presentations, experimental productions & performances, and much more. Ahhhh … Endless possibilities!
