FILTER THE PUBLIC:SWFC 5th Anniversary Art Project
[Press Release]

Press Release:


SWFC 5th Anniversary Art Project

Duration: 2013.10.25 Fri. – 11.10 Sun.

Opening Reception: 2013.10.25 fri. 18:30–21:00

Project Director: 鸟本健太 Kenta Torimoto, 李力 Lise Li

We are pleased to announce “FILTER THE PUBLIC” as the large-scale art project to commemorate the SWFC 5th Anniversary.

As one of the most iconic landmarks in Shanghai, the prominence of SWFC does not only dwell within its horizontal space but yet include its unique design and height of 492 meters. The area of the exhibition will not only cover the public space, both indoor and outdoor, but also includes the SWFC tower itself as an art museum with its beauty of being an art piece.
Through art, people can realize more about things around themselves. Public art is a friendly approach which allows the space to have conversation with people.

Artists representing Shanghai, leading curators, and galleries will create their art shows under the same inspiration of Shanghai and Lujiazui area. To celebrate our anniversary, please welcome the new challenge of possibilities and the role of art in public space. SWFC is opening up a new dimension of art.

SWFC LED Urban Sculpture Project
18:00-23:00 Building Exterior LED Lights

Light up Shanghai’s skyscraper with three masterpieces from three artists on the SWFC LED screen-tower. We would like to celebrate the anniversary of this building on its LED projection in the town. Three artists are invited to create their LED art by using SWFC tower as the medium to display their stories. You are also invited to join and be a part of the show for the whole 17 nights in Shanghai.

丁乙 Ding Yi 10.25–10.29 18:00 -23:00

Titled “Infinity”, the work appears in the midst of the dense social and economic tissue that makes up the heart of Shanghai City. LED Light streams rapidly spread, intersect, expand and evolve above the moving stage. The endless changes born out of crosses, together with the sense of speed created by acceleration of switches on color and flashing frequency, compose an abstract inverted image of the city.

Greenhouse Core
10.30–11. 3 18:00 -23:00


Occasionally one’s skin can be changed to blend in and seem invisible against the surrounding environment. For this special occasion, SWFC will signal its physical and virtual appearance as it has never been done before.

For SWFC’s Fifth Anniversary we want to celebrate this landmark as the iconic feature of Shanghai’s Contemporary skyline, highlighting its great presence with a site-specific installation of color kinetics. UNMIMETIC DAYS also offers an invitation for the public to participate in an adventure and reveal and experience a new perspective of SWFC’s character through Augmented Reality.
