This exhibition, Sparkling Garden – Guan Huai Bin Works, features 16 sets of installations and images by contemporary Chinese artist Guan Huai Bin, presenting the light and darkness of a “garden” in a variety of forms. The showcase is divided into two sections: one comprised of nine images and the other comprised of seven related installations. The two sections form a complete work that creates an ambiance of a “garden”; whether it is the installations that make up the space or the moving images – both serve as clues for the audience to “decode” the exhibition’s theme and symbols.
Guan Huaibin is currently the president, professor and doctoral advisor at the School of Intermedia Arts (SIMA) of the China Academy of Art. He has participated in several important international art exhibitions, and his works have been collected by several art institutions. Guan Huaibin excels in deconstructing and absorbing the traditional cultural elements and modes of perception into his own language system and creative structure of his works. By incorporating Chinese classical garden aesthetics into his spatial installations, the works are permeated with an alternative temperament of Chinese contemporary art.
When: November 2–February 24, 2018
Where: Special Exhibition Room, 3/F, Macao Museum of Art, Avenida Xian Xing Hai, NAPE, Macau
How much: Free admission
