Gu Xiong: The Remains of A Journey
The Remains of a Journey brings visibility to historic sites that have gradually faded away from official narratives as their physical remnants have disappeared from the landscape. During the mid-19th century, Chinese immigrants began settling along the coast of British Columbia to work the gold and coal mines and to build the transcontinental railway that would form the backbone of Canada. Today, there are only a few remaining structures of the many settlements that spread throughout the province. Yet, the immigrants’ collective memories have lived on in the community in the form of stories, artifacts, and monuments.
Wang Yiming: Waiting for the wind
From September 18th to 19th, 2020, “Waiting for the Wind—Wang Yiming’s Artistic Action” (Rainbow) slowly unfolded in Gangga Town, Xigaze, Tibet, facing Mount Qomolangma and surrounding mountain peaks of over 8,000 meters. The 83 large scale paintings created by the artist Wang Yiming over the past few years were carried on the backs of 57 yak, alongside the curvature of the hilly terrain, across the fields whose shadow and shape was formed by the sun, the rolling skies, and snow-capped mountains. Amongst the wilderness and unrelenting wind, the ritualistic procession of Wang’s works across the landscape seems to form a rainbow that appears at the third pole of the earth.
Group Exhibition：Investigation of Things
Canada China art exchange exhibition for young emerging artists
Investigation of Things, is an ancient Chinese term for studying the nature of things and affaires, using an observation method in order to acquire wisdom. While Western thoughts emphasize objective analysis and material forms, Chinese emphasizes unity. Objects often represent deeper feelings and ideas. This is one of the examples of how the East and the West have developed two cultures of diverging emphases. Investigation of things as the theme, hopes to generate reflections on the potentially different methodologies of the two cultures, and evoke unique responses from different perspectives each artist may have.
Eli Bornowsky： A Way to Finish Thinking
Bornowsky’s use of the ancient medium of egg tempera–a principal material of religious painting through the medieval and renaissance periods. The sacred aspect of this mediums history is emphasized by the artists recent practice of Russian Orthodox icon writing at the Holy Cross Monastery in upstate New York. The religious tones of this practice come into contrast with the conceptual methods and abstract appearance of the work. Here the paintings weave together elements of science, formalism, and phenomenology with spirituality, contemplation and prayer.
Immortal of Play
How ceramics (or clay), as an art material and medium in artistic practices continue to evolve in contemporary art is an issue faced by every ceramic artist – how does an ancient art form generate new possibilities and necessities to contemporary social realities? In the same way as to how competitive sports evolved from life and death combat, the concept of “to play” has become a symbol of “civility” in human civilization. The two artists in this exhibition, Amy Chang Li-Chuan and Wei Cheng both attempt to break away from the ingrained concepts in ceramics differently, yet “to play” has become their shared strategy
