Shen Shaomin: I Want to Know What Infinity Is

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

Katie Holten: : Paths of Desire

Katie Holten: : Paths of Desire | Art Installations, Sculpture, Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

Irish artist Katie Holten: Paths of Desire, Mixed media, dimensions variableContemporary Art Museum St. Louis, 207


The uprooted tree is a very powerful symbol, capable of combining delicacy and brutality. Its surface, made from paper and cardboard covered with shiny black adhesive tape, contrasts strongly with the natural appearance of the forms, denouncing their contrivance. The tree, the very symbol of nature, thus assumes a deadly meaning, making us reflect on the delicate and fragile condition of the natural ecosystems. The indoor installation, purposely compressed by the ceiling, with the roots floating on the floor instead of buried, is a visual condemnation of the global environmental crisis.

Shen Shaomin: "Summit, 2010" | Art Installations, Sculpture, Contemporary Art | Scoop.it

Shen Shaomin, "Summit, 2010" - Mao. Newer Older. "Summit (2010)


"Summit (2010) is conceived as a response to the global financial crisis. Taking as a point of reference the annual G8 Summit, Shen has created a hypothetical meeting of the most significant communist leaders. Their life-sized corpses, arranged in a pentagon, rest in crystal coffins that reflect their nationalities. Castro, the still-alive exception, lies silently on his deathbed."

'Firmament' is a single 'expanded field' sculpture constructed from 1019 steel balls held in the space by 1770 steel elements of different lengths, welded together to create a non-regular, polygonal structure whose form dissolves and resolves in space.
