Liu Chuang: Segmented Landscape
November 6th, 2015 through February 5th, 2016
K11 art village, Wuhan
The exhibition title, Segmented Landscape, is derived from an eponymous artwork by Liu Chuang, which lies at the core of the exhibition. The visual imagery of the artwork is based on the classical Chinese pattern “Fangsheng”, a common device that has been used as anti-burglary grilles on windows since 1980s. The motif has become ubiquitous among modern architecture, witnessing the evolving social history through the lens of its multilayered profile. First exhibited in the 10thShanghai Biennial under the invitation of Chief Curator Anselm Franke, Liu Chuang will show his most recent video works from that series in this solo presentation. A progression of installations and videos interrogating both the utilitarian aspect of “window” and the aesthetic will be on display, projecting the trajectory of China’s modernisation in last thirty years.
