Télévoix’ is a group of artworks about the shadows of images, the emptiness and mystery that poses — thinking about the presence, thickness and material of images, whose pixels have none of those things,” Fu said. The exhibition consists of a video on a monitor, a projected video of fake shadows, an image-based sculpture in a corner, and a large double-sided curtain.
