Chinese artist Shi Wanwan is invited to hold a solo exhibition as part of Ox Warehouse’s Artist-in-Residence program and first held in Mong-Ha Villas (Vivendas Verdes). Shi Wanwan is a conceptual artist based on the creation of a specific context. Graduated from the Sculpture Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts with a master’s degree, he is currently studying for Ph.D. in the School of Intermedia Art of the China Academy of Art.
This exhibition is inspired by Macau’s special place between the 16th century in the Discovery Age and the 19th century when the world was undergoing tremendous transformations, presenting historical marks left on its citizens today. During his residence in Macau, Shi Wanwan tried to observe and communicate with the city, the result is a series of Macau-inspired works completed for this exhibition.
