Without Wall

Shen Yuan

3.4 - 4.4, 2017



In this exhibition, the exhibition walls are eye-catching barbed wire instead, refused to pass the body but the visual is penetrating. The entrance to the exhibition hall is first cut off by the "1/2 bowl" of the work, which consists of three parts: a bowl-type building, a bowl of large buildings in the bowl, And built. "Big Bowl", which is both a man holding food utensils, and metaphor of the world's common circular building on behalf of the power of the consultation device, which was cut into half of the barbed wire, let us see the power shown and the presence of Contrast.

And another piece of work in the exhibition, "I was seen, I was not obvious" metaphor of the problem of immigration in Europe. The gray-blue light boxes on the ground are blue eyes and several breathless lifeboats, and the audience must watch the work through a narrow, double barbed wire channel. This is a reverse experience, so that the viewer (the host) is on the border. The channel is connected to the exhibition hall of the continuous barbed wire, in series from the viewer's experience and ideas.
