Wei Ji = Still in Crossing* Dai Guangyu solo show
This exhibition focuses on the reconstruction of a constant developing system of cultural concepts and symbols. It shows the changes, in landscapes, in portraits, in oneself. The technique of work involves the repeated actions and transformations of the painting to reach a never ending cultural interpretations and reinterpretations. The works presented are reconstructed ink paintings on rice paper, an installation work in the centre of the booth and a performance by Dai Guangyu.
Dai Guangyu became one of the leaders of the New Art Wave Movement of Sichuan at the end of the 80’s. His strong cultural and educational environment has made the artist particularly aware on social and cultural issues that he has been faithfully researching, analysing and depicting throughout his entire career.
