Sun Xun: Tears of Chiwen
Solo Exhibition Arario Gallery, Seoul, Korea
Date: 09.06, 2017 - 10.29, 2017

Artists: SUN Xun 孙逊

Chiwen, the legendary animal used as ornaments on two sides of roof ridge on ancient eastern architectures, are known as the dragon’s son, who is good as spewing waves and making rain. Chiwen on the roof ridge are used as good omen to prevent fire and bring good fortune on the house.

The tears of Chiwen is a metaphor. In recent east Asian history, each country absorbs western culture in different ways, and now demonstrates different appearances of westernization. Tears, are both tear and water, both sadness and fortune. Chiwen’s tears are introspection of the modernity of East Asian Culture under the context of globalization.--SUN Xun
