This exhibition is Zhan Wang’s most significant presentation of new sculptural creations since his solo show in 2012 at Long March Space, Beijing. The new series of sculptures is seen to follow the same vein as the artist’s early realistic sculptures, “Mao Suits” (1993), “Artificial Rock” (1995-ongoing) and “Flowers in the Mirror” (2004-2005). Conceptually, Zhan regards his celebrated series “Artificial Rock” as an attempt to “mimic” nature, while his new series has made breakthrough progresses both conceptually and sculpturally from “Artificial Rock”. The world reflected from the polished stainless steel surface of “Artificial Rock” has fascinated Zhan Wang. Ever since “Flowers in the Mirror”, a series of photographs based on the reflection from the surface of “Artificial Rock”, the artist has been contemplating on the relationship between the twisted imagery of the reflection and his sculptural practices. The fruits of this contemplation are the new series of sculptures. The artist brings the otherworldly reflection to life into physical sculptural form with a sculptor’s imagination and instinct, filling it with volume, details and tactility.
