If you’re thinking of doing a travelogue, why not document your vacation the way how emerging Chinese artist Liu Yi did for hers?
Take a leaf from the artist’s solo exhibition ‘Flowing Feast’, which opens today at ShanghART Singapore at Gillman Barracks, and will run through 13 August 2017.
Featuring her travels in India – in the forms of documentary footages with evocative Chinese ink animations, the 12-minute video, titled ‘A Crow Has Been Calling for a Whole Day’, is a metaphorical journey through life and death. It fuses diverse art forms and heritages in an ecstatic celebration of multiculturalism.
With the aim of providing a sense of ambiguity and mystery, her work also combines the concepts of blurring, obscuring and overlapping of vision via fabric curtains, whilst celebrating the eternal cycle of life and its primitive vitality.
‘Flowing Feast’ is indeed the kind of exhibition for you, if you are an art-lover, who has an affinity for works with deep meanings and painstaking processes.
The exhibition also showcases ‘Origin of Species’ (see below), another hand-painted animation from the artist, with a surrealistic take on the evolution of life.
