4me4you visits Edel Assanti, which featured Gordon Cheung – Tears of Paradise.
Edel Assanti…>Cheung witnesses and interprets the emergence of China as a twenty first century global superpower, framing current events in the context of the “Century of Humiliation ” and the opium wars.
Cheung’s paintings blend real and foreseen events to articulate the speed and complexity of change, constantly weighing human costs. In the middle of the gallery there was a monumental sculptural installation, entitled Home. Made from financial newspaper and bamboo Cheung’s window installation refers to homes in China with traditional window designs that were demolished for rapid urbanisation. The sculpture hovers between states of being, suggesting a ghost architecture that would have supported the windows.
4me4you… capturing this very interesting installation, to give you a great visual experience.
