Opening: Nov. 3rd, 2019
Animation films are important composition parts of SUN Xun’s previous works. This time the intervention of glass will give audiences many conjectures on how he combines materialized glass with his moving images.
Starting from the original concept of Frontier (Part I) in 2018, SUN attempted for the first time to create large-scale mechanical installations, which combines moving machinery with paintings. They not only givefull play to the characteristics of glass, but also embedded glass into his personal creation system.
The utilization and re-creation of historical themes have always been an important thread in his work, and this exhibition can also be traced back along this thread: the origin of this exhibition is On a Mission to the Frontier, a poem by Tang Dynasty poet Wang Wei. This exhibition echoes with Frontier (Part I) which exhibited in last November, displaying a non-linear "story of space ".
