Using sound as the main medium, this spatial work connects the gallery space with its external environment. Black suggests acceptance and disguise - the experience of continuous inflation in a person’s body after having absorbed various information from society, the city and daily life. This is a black hole that we cannot see, linking the outside world with the self. Artist Yang Xinguang’s spatial and performance piece will generate a process which reminds us the presence of Black. Visitors are invited to respond on site to the experience of Black in their own ways.


Black Sesame is the project space of Institute for Provocation, and opened in June 2014. Located in a converted boiler room of the IFP courtyard in Heizhima hutong 13, Black Sesame is a venue for exhibitions, performances, workshops and events. With its characteristic high ceiling, flexible lighting conditions and ideal exhibition layout, Black Sesame is a unique 'white cube' located in one of the authentic Beijing courtyards.

Apart from being closely linked to IFP's residency programme and the resident artists, Black Sesame also works as a meeting space between the local Beijing art scene and the international community of artists hosted by IFP. With a programme focussing on solo exhibitions with local and international artists with overlapping themes or interests, we encourage hands-on experimentation and transformation of the gallery space. Artists and exhibtions are linked together through a coherent programme which includes talks and performances.
