Showing until April 3 at Berlin gallery Peres Projects.
The work is the centrepiece of I Want to Sleep More but by Your Side, the artist’s first solo exhibition at the Berlin-based gallery Peres Projects. Drawing inspiration from her childhood experiences of growing up on a factory compound, the exhibition revolves around a fictional narrative of an online romance between a teenage factory worker and a French mother.
Exploring eroticism in digital spaces, as well geopolitical notions of gendered and reproductive labour, Shuang Li presents mass-produced products as erotic objects, reconfiguring the chain of supply and demand as a system of commodified desire.
I Want to Sleep More but by Your Side is showing until April 3, at Peres Projects.
