Xu Bing at Beijing’s Ullens Center for Contemporary Art
Internationally renowned artist Xu Bing presents a comprehensive exhibition of his works titled ‘Thought and Method’ at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing.
The Beijing-based visual artist is celebrated for his printmaking skills and conceptual installations. The exhibition, ‘Xu Bing: Thought and Method’ will take place at the Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing from 21st July until 18th October. This retrospective exhibition will feature many of his most popular works since the 1980s. His interdisciplinary approach and originality have earned him international acclaim.
Bing is also known for the extensive research that goes into his projects as he delves into language and words to find new visually impacting ways of demonstrating how they affect our understanding of the world. His famed ‘A Book from the Sky’ installation made with hand-printed scrolls and books required four years to complete. This piece is comprised of book volumes and scrolls printed with fake Chinese characters that he invented and then carved onto the printing blocks.
This work was fist presented in Beijing in 1988 and has since been displayed around the globe. It is known for its reflective yet contradicting message, pages and pages of meaningless text that cannot be read. This installation and many more thought-provoking pieces will be featured.
