Bonsai-NO.39 by Shen Shaomin

Bonsai-NO.39 by Shen Shaomin | Art Installations, Sculpture, Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

Shen Shaomin / 沈少民 : "Bonsai-NO.39", Eli Klein Fine Art, 2007

size: h: 36.6 x w: 54.4 x d: 27.5 in / h: 93 x w: 138.2 x d: 69.8 cm, materials: Plants, iron tools

 

Shaomin's bonsai works 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.

The installation creates a microclimate, especially inside two parts, in which the viewer can enter. Inside them there is a lower temperature and higher humidity than outside the building.
