> DESCRIPTION
For Sparkling (Upgraded), Yan Lei's upcoming solo exhibition, the Beijing-based artist has conceived of an immersive installation that continues his ongoing exploration of representation, power and the medium of painting. Walking atop a glittering floor, visitors will find the exhibition hall transformed, its walls covered with artist-designed wallpaper. Paintings hang throughout the space, documenting the luminaries of the Chinese art scene, inspired in part by UCCA Director Jerome Sans' Polaroid photographs. The show addresses issues of art, value and celebrity from a playful and knowing perspective.
