Ma Sibo's solo exhibition Stand in Silence is on view at Gowen Contemporary in Genéve, Switzerland from 28 February to 31 May 2020.
"The paintings selected for the exhibition, all produced in 2019, are from the artist’s recent researches on the artificial night light of urban and industrial landscapes observed in the polluted streets of downtown Beijing or in its suburbs. In an atmosphere of quasi science fiction, isolated figurative subjects appear as symbols of a counterworld, one of daylight, belonging to a distant past. In the silence of the night, humanity is reduced to a shadow. Objects, evoked more by absence than by presence, bear witness to the change of a civilization moving towards an uncertain future."
