Objects of Idea
ZHAN Wang’s latest solo exhibition “Objects of Idea” opens at Long March Space, Beijing, on July 25. To the artist, the word “idea” represents the descent of inspirations and thinking of individual artists; it freely cruises within the scope of words with similar meanings, such as “thought,” “belief,” “philosophy” and “concept.” By presenting 23 works made since 1990, the exhibition seeks to highlight Zhan’s lifelong practice, versatile explorations of materials, artisanship and artistic languages, and his methodology in the integration of ideas and production.
