Probability-Turn Right
Oil on canvas

Probability – Turn Right comes from the series Probability by HUANG Kui, who believed that "the occurrence of any event leads to a split of the universe, but we can only live in the universe perceptible to us." In 2009, HUANG injured himself severely, an incident which reinforced his awareness that "in the world we can perceive, we exist at a 100% probability." In hospital he took a series of photographs - about what he saw, including parts of human body, followed by some other pictures of him in the accident scene. Through the image recording, the artist observed both the "self in this second" and the "self in the previous second", seeking for self-image beyond "the perceptible world". In this series, HUANG portrayed faithfully the image of "uncertain self" in the language of painting. And finally the aggregation of these images completely denied the existence of "himself" ever before this moment.
Artist has exhibited his works in: 52nd Venice Biennale in 2007, the 6th Shanghai Biennale in 2006 and solo exhibition My Projection is Focusing in 2011 in ShanghART Gallery.
