Artists: Shao Yinong and Muchen


Almost eight years since the duo’s last titled exhibition in Hong Kong, Shao Yinong and Muchen return with four series of enlightening new works as a tribute to the new stage of their creative venture. The acclaimed artist duo Shao Yinong and Muchen have been working together and individually throughout the years. Since the first collaboration entitled Family Register, to the highly critical and successful Assembly Halls, they have been documenting the part of history in which they lived through with mixed media including photography, painting and installation. Having experienced the decades of rapid developments in China, the artists pity the vanishing of the quintessence of traditional Chinese culture. A Splendid Web from Heaven to Earth is an installation of a giant web flowing delicately from ceiling to the floor. The stainless-steel-made web looks shimmering and inviting from afar. However, as one gets closer, what seems so still and peaceful a moment ago suddenly turns unsettling. The conflicting feeling is a metaphor of the chaos in today’s world. It poses a question to our being, a threat to our sense of existence.
