Exhibition Is Song’s First Since “Waste Not” At New York’s MoMA Last Year
Fans of Song Dong, the Chinese artist whose exhibition “Waste Not” made a splash last year at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, should be sure to check out Song’s new solo exhibition at Pace Beijing, running from October 30 to December 18 of this year.
As one of the most important conceptual artists in Chinese contemporary art fields. Song Dong’s works combine a wide array of forms including performance, video, sculpture, and among others. Often drawn from everyday life, his works express his thinking on philosophical issues in a plain form that ordinary people can easily access. The new series on view, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter are his latest video works. The “Eating Landscape” series constructed with food reflect his intervention and satire of traditional art. Song Dong’s artworks always respond to secular culture, which evolves into an art form through the artist’s performance.
Works in the exhibition integrate the vulgarity of food with the elegance of landscape of Chinese literati tradition. In this way, material life is combined with spiritual pursuit in a sardonic manner, while the process reveals a kind of implicit and indescribable philosophy.
