Alchemy of Color by Daishi Luo

Daishi Luo began to study the coloring culture and history of bronze forgery in 2015 and developed her unique skills and creative methods in the long-term in-depth practice. She blurs the boundary between science and art, designs the behavior of the material, and makes copper grow spontaneously like a plant with color and delicate landscape, thus exploring the logic of natural creation full of vitality behind this "cold and hard" material. From this point of view, Daishi reflects on and discusses the contemporary human-centered thinking of creation and our relationship with nature and matter through her works.

Titled "Color Alchemy", this solo exhibition will present a series of new works. Through videos, installations, paintings, and sculptures, Daishi is shown step by step to explore the beauty of natural creation logic (biology) under different material states.

The Double Life by Zhipeng Tan

TanTan or Satan? Cute or cool? They are two very different figures in the fictional world created by Zhipeng Tan. One hippie, one futuristic. They are two different kinds of people like you and me, but they are more like side A and side B of our humanity. Sometimes soft, sometimes firm; Sometimes introverted, sometimes make public; Sometimes naughty, sometimes serious... They are seemingly incompatible opposites, but they create a unique fullness of human nature in the mix.

Since 2015, Zhipeng has been using sculpture to create his utopian world. He is keen to explore the elastic and permeable boundary between art and design, looking for the harmonious integration of sculpture and furniture, as well as works that are both aesthetic and practical. Here, there are no boundaries, no established definitions, only the desire to find and discover oneself, the exploration of humanity and the world.
