Artist Ting-Ting Cheng's forthcoming group show

30th May - 4th June 2017

How to get out of London in 30 days

Ting-Ting Cheng, the most recent artist-in-residence at the Stuart Hall Library, will be participating in a group exhibition ‘The Xenophobia of Time?' with her project How to get out of London in 30 days. How to get out of London in 30 days is a reverse travel guide with an accompanied performance, aiming to reveal the imperialistic illusion constructed by mass media and the immigration policy of the British government. From the perspective of an immigrant in London, Cheng made the project while waiting for the result of a painstaking visa application – a period almost defined by restricted mobility. 

‘The Xenophobia of Time?’ is a week-long exhibition curated by Ying-Hsuan Tai exploring the pertinent issues of migration. It takes place in Clerkenwell Gallery, London from 30th May to 4th June 2017. Works by the artists Ting-Ting Cheng, Edwin Mingard, Nele Vos, and Shao-Jie Lin examine the intricacies of a particularly uncertain future created by the processes of obtaining entry to a state, renewing a visa or gaining citizenship.
