Harmony

Sculptures by Zheng Lu. Medium: Stainless steel.

 

Modeled after ordinary Chinese houses, these works use the language of sculpture to extract and reveal formal structures. The contours of a house are delineated, joined with surfaces, and then reconstituted in solid form as a set of three-dimensional frame houses, row upon row – modern consciousness in sculpted form.

 

There is a proverb: “A family in harmony will prosper in all things.” The basis of familial harmony is harmony between individuals, and a group of colorful houses serves as an interpretation of this metaphor.

The Walking Words

Sculptures by Liu Yonggang. Medium: Cast iron.

 

Blending the charms of Chinese history and culture with contemporary art forms, the artist depicts the evolution of writing by making three-dimensional sculptures out of ideographs.

 

From left to right, the words TAI and GU are magically transformed into a couple in a joyous embrace. At Taikoo Li Sanlitun, the two met, became friends, fell in love and achieved the eternal promise of "growing old together, hand in hand."
