And so we are 10! Begun a decade ago, this little project has grown somewhat, with a few notable moments along the road. We have had a lot of great shows, won a couple of spots on various "lists", worked with some terrific artists from China and abroad, sold a few pieces of art, and had a great time doing it in one of the greatest cities in the world! And we will keep doing it! Onwards and upwards...

There will be some changes to come this year, so lots to look forward to, but one thing for sure, we will keep bringing forth interesting projects and original art that you can't find so easily elsewhere in Shanghai. Some things will stay the same, we will keep adding great artists to the family, and showing smart, approachable art, having fun events, and most of all, being welcoming to all.

So thank you for all your support, first to the artists, too many to list here... and many who could not join the show this time! And very importantly, our collectors and our fans! The sponsors (for this party GOTHAM EAST and D'Vine Gin!! Quite possibly the best G&T's ever served at an art gallery!), our friends in the media, Smart Shanghai, Time Out, City Weekend, CNCREATE, Leap, Yishu Journal, ArtInfo, Modern Painter, Art& Auction, ArtlinkArt, and everyone else around the world. Art Zhou, Artscape, George Hsu and Lan Linfeng - you guys have been amazing, couldn't do it without you!

Here's to the future, unpredictable, challenging, satisfying and the best part, truly unknown. Thanks for being along for the ride with us!

ART LABOR Gallery - Mani Mazinani biography (PDF)

Mani Mazinani thinks about thinking. His work records thoughts in order to cause a transfer of concentration. He is interested in the nature of things and the metaphysical bridge between perception and reality. With his multidisciplinary practice, Mazinani directs attention to the physicality and logic of his subject medium in order to make things available for understanding. In his works, ancient philosophy and contemporary concerns intersect to create environments for an audience to have experiences. Mazinani has produced work in video, installation, music, painting, photography, printmaking, performance, film and sound. His work, such as Scalene (2008), Light Air (2010), Screen Scene (2011) and Wild Mountain Time (2014), have been shown internationally in festivals and exhibitions including a solo exhibition at Vtape and in a two-person show at Luminato, with Michael Snow. His improvised and composed music is presented frequently in recordings and performances. Mazinani specialized in visual art and ancient philosophy at the University of Toronto and continues to study these fields of thought.

about this work

The main figure in this piece is named Yamantaka. He is the destroyer of death in some versions of Hinduism and Buddhism. Yama was originally a monk who had been meditating for so many lives and was finally at the edge of enlightenment. One day, while seated in meditating a group of thieves who had recently stolen a cow entered his cave to escape the authorities. The monk pleaded with them to leave him alive for only a few minutes until he became enlightened. After that, they were welcome to kill him. The bandits refused this request and instead chopped his head off. Yama then flew into a livid murderous rage and cut off the head of the stolen cow and the heads of bandits and put them on his neck as his own. He then left the cave having become the lord of death and began killing everyone he encountered. The gods watched the death toll rise and seeing this destruction went to Shiva to ask for help. Shiva then assumed the same form as Yama to confront him. He had to become death to kill death and since Shiva is infinitely more powerful, he defeated Yama in an instant. In some Buddhist sects Yama is the first deity that we encounter at death and after the 40 some days of Bardo we encounter Yamantaka when death comes to an end and we're conceived for our next life.
