Utopian Mountain is an extension of Plant Republic, a project launched by SHI Qing in 2011. Made up of constructions that emblematise republic and conceptualised mountains, the series is exhibited in a floating form. The artist decommodifies the carton boxes and creates a hollow democratic structure. It's a mixed entity of man-made objects and landscape, whose flowing colour hints at the potential power. SHI emphasises the necessity of working. He believes in the process of planing, building and displaying, the reason of an artwork's existence is created.
