shanghai art biennal

This art biennale is the second occasion to present the ephemeral monument project in China. The angle is still critical but this time more in relation with a current event: The expo2010. The scenography develops the theme of the brick in another way. A ruins landscape of polyurethane bocks is created. Blue bricks evoke the color of “haibao”, mascot of this expo that is at the origin of the massive destruction of the city since 2004. We can feel a tension between the art piece and the scenography, showing tragically the relation between the cause and its effects…
