Zhongying Shi in residence at ODRADEK : Mutual Dependancy
A Zen journey at the heart of contemporary Chinese sculpture
In residence at ODRADEK, Zhongying Shi presents a work entirely created in Belgium.
Based on a self-portrait called “self” carried in his luggage, the Beijing artist begins a new reflection on the language of sculpture.
Since the arrival of Buddhism in China, representations of the Awakened have undergone various artistic and philosophical developments. Zhongying Shi draws inspiration from this heritage to create installations and paintings revolving around the poles of emptiness-fullness, background-form, signifier-signified.
