Shen Shaomin: I Want to Know What Infinity Is

Shen Shaomin: I Want to Know What Infinity Is | Art Installations, Sculpture | Scoop.it

Shen Shaomin: I Want to Know What Infinity Is, 2011-12. Silica gel, breathing installation, lawn chair. 23 1/2 x 59 x 31 1/2 inches (60 x 150 x 80 cm).

"Through a similar methodology, I Want to Know What Infinity Is questions the urge to relentlessly develop and expand our economies at all costs. Similar to the way we strive for development, the old, naked, breathing hyperrealistic sculpture of a woman relentlessly strives for a perfect tan. In Shen Shaomin's eyes, the consequences of our constant need for development will change the face of our planet, just as the undying urge for beauty transformed this old woman's body."

Wood is one of the oldest symbols of the layers of meaning developed throughout history: the habitat of local spirits, the axis of the universe, the tree of knowledge, the first symbol of sin and salvation, a symbol of the Holy Spirit, the living symbol of the universe, the cosmic opposite wood, wood enlightenment, Buddha, mystical wood, sexual symbolism in psychoanalysis. Centuries developed symbolic tree resulted in the 20th century - in the tree of development of the theory of mathematics and computer science (computer organizes information in a conventional linear text structure tree is now replaced by a hyper-text, has a web page of the tree has a tree structure, the film is in the direction of the hype of the film ...).

Shen Shaomin: Bonsai

Shen Shaomin: Bonsai | Art Installations, Sculpture | Scoop.it

Shen Shaomin: Bonsai, 2007


Work use the manipulation and torture of these plants in order to question our current attitudes towards consumption and nature whilst examining Chinese culture. The intimately scaled, beautiful and ancient looking trees are twisted and buckled using metal instruments reminiscent of dental equipment. Accompanied by text these small objects question the viewers sense of their own environments and the concerned yet oblivious perspective the majority of us exercise on a day-to-day basis.

Aesthetically these small scaled works conjure ideas of destruction versus nurture and traditional versus industrial, awakening the uncanny.
