THE INTERSECTIONS OF ABSTRACTION, TEXT & LANGUAGE, POST-MODERNIST AESTHETICS, EXPERIMENTAL, PERFORMATIVE, MULTI-MEDIA APPROACHES TO ARTMAKING // ORIGINAL CONTENT SELECTED BY JONATHAN WEISKOPF, BROOKLYN, NY
Zheng Guogu
Waterfall, 2003


Wax, paper, metal armature, Collaborative work with the Yangjiang group including Chen Zaiyan and Sun Qinglin, 210 x 140 x 140 cm
Zheng’s sculptural work often combines materials that serve as both tactile and symbolic matter. In Waterfall, the juxtaposition of metal ballast, embedded calligraphy scripts and melted wax can be seen as a reference to the tensions between China’s rich history and its recent transformations. Reminiscent of a mountainous landscape, the work hints at the ever-shifting environment of modern China. With great impact, Waterfall raises critical questions on ideas of permanence and temporality, of the past and the future.
