Zhuang Hong-Yi | Museum Ulm
Zhuang Hong-Yi's first solo exhibition in a german museum
The Chinese artist Zhuang Hong Yi (*1962 Sichuan / China I lives in Rotterdam and Beijing) combines imaginary opposites almost without effort and condenses them into space-consuming wall objects which, due to their seductive haptic character and enchanting dynamic palette of colours, appear rather as installative wall objects than paintings. He calls them Flowerbeds, these flowerheads which sprout equally from the canvas, sometimes tenderly fragile, sometimes deliberately voluminous. In their material language of rice paper, ink and varnish, they quote Chinese handicrafts to seek for a place to sprout between European NeoImpressionism and Western Abstraction. The Museum Ulm presents a selection of works by Zhuang Hong Yi in a solo museum exhibition for the first time in Germany from March 03 to June 17, 2018.
