Taiwanese architect Chu, Chi Kang tonight at The Venice Architecture Biennale will reveal “Mountains˙Waters” – the brass made work will experience the weather and environment of Venice, and its appearance will change from shiny to green during the 6 months exhibition period.
“Mountains˙Waters” is a part of “Time Space Existence”, the official Collateral Event of 2016 Venice Biennale of Architecture, VIP preview begins 18:00 on the evening of May 26th at Pallazo Mora.
“My work is in a relationship with Venice. My creations have been nurtured by my study of fine arts and traditional Chinese painting during university years. From the confined space inside the Venetian heritage building, I attempted to offer a different perspective of an urban mirage. The organic landscape of mountains and waters represents the ‘Nature’ created by humans, as the manmade extension also exhibits Nature’s growth. Since human beings are part of organic Earth, so are our buildings. The perspective encourages conservation of primitive ‘Nature’ that we have been part of, says the architect.
During the exhibition, the bronze work will gradually reflect the natural impact of Venice’s air, humidity, and sunlight. The exhibition opens to the public from May 28th, 2016 through to November 27th, 2016.
