WU JUNYONG: EAST MOUNTAIN, SOUTH OCEAN


WU JUNYONG: EAST MOUNTAIN, SOUTH OCEAN

The title of this exhibition is taken from Wu Junyong’s latest work, East Mountain, North Country, South Ocean, West Garden. An animation installation, it is the artist’s imagining of the four cardinal directions, with four distinctive sequences of images threading through the entire exhibition space, supported by two animations representative of Wu’s unique aesthetic.

Accompanying the moving images, a selection of large-scale paintings on paper continue Wu’s interest in the juxtaposition of eastern and western mythologies, also reinterpreting traditional Chinese subjects and concerns.

Born in 1978, Wu Junyong lives and works in Hangzhou. He grew up surrounded by folk and vernacular arts, and studied printmaking and new media at the China Academy of Fine Art for both his Bachelor and Master’s degrees. In recent years, he has focused on creating animations and paintings on paper, with his approach recognised as unique amongst artists of his generation.

吴俊勇:东山南海

本次展览标题来自吴俊勇的最新作品《东山南海西园北国》。这件动画装置是艺术家对地理上四个方位的异想幻象,由四个影像构成,将以独特形式贯穿整个展厅。现场同时呈现的还有两件代表性的动画作品。

这次展览也展示艺术家最新创作的大幅纸上绘画作品,主题除了艺术家一直关注的东西比较神话,也有对传统题材的重新解读。
