DESCRIPTION

The first solo exhibition of Huang Zhiyang in Shanghai will be held at Art+ Shanghai Gallery. Unveiled in our new gallery space, the exhibition will include a site-specific five-meter long miniature Chinese garden created by the artist displaying his new marble sculptures. The installation will rest among a labyrinth of ink paintings draped from the ceiling.

The artist’s sculptural exploration is one concerned with the science of nature and study of life. The evolution of living organisms from cells into plants and human forms has been the underlining theme of Huang’s artistic career. A Thousand Plateaus examines the origin, structure and evolution of the artist’s rich repertoire of new ink paintings and marble sculptures in an epic gallery installation.

The exhibition is running simultaneously with a large-scale public artwork featured in the HOT SPOTS at the 2012 SH Contemporary Art Fair. The site-specific installation will feature 10 new large granite sculptures by the artist at the entrance to the fair.
