The Consulate General of Germany in Guangzhou is sponsoring a “Tape Art around the World” exhibition and interactive event at Redtory. The show began on December 10. At the opening performance, an interactive workshop was held with participation from the audience, who were able to experience theoretical and practical hands on education in the art of taping.
Tape That, a Berlin-based group of performance artists, presented the event that will last through spring. This is the first trip to China for the three attending artists - Nicolas Lawin, Stefan Busch and Stephan Meißner.
Tape That uses ordinary tape as primary material and designs plans inspired by the available location. Adhesive tape installations of all colors and sizes take shape and come alive as the artists perform, creating a magical illusion rising from simple lines. Their style ranges from colorful, complex tape and light installations to minimalist black and white murals.
As a relatively new art form, most people are reluctant or even skeptical when they first come in contact with tape art. The fascination of the art form lies in the combination of creative possibilities and the natural limitations of an everyday material. After every performance, new bodies of shape and light result from the work of the gifted trio.
The tape art collective is a renowned group exploring new ways of expressing ideas, creativity and vision. Though the main activities of the group revolve around Berlin, Tape That is active in many other cities in Europe and throughout the world. Time
