A "retro-Sci Fi" movie made out of the artist’s research into the transformation of Beijing’s Jiuxianqiao (Hong Xia) district, Nova tells the story of a computer scientist attempting to turn humans into digital mediums. Shifting between past, present and future narratives, the film takes us on a journey beyond chronological time into a series of dreamlike worlds that hover between fantasy and reality.

The screening will begin with a Q&A between Cao Fei and Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director of the Serpentine Galleries.
